My linen has arrived and Jane and I are about to meet. She has been patiently waiting with her new friend, Frances, who is a paper mâché pin holder I picked up last week in a charming little shop up North. For those of you not from Wisconsin, "up North" is pretty much anything in the upper third of the state. The topography changes from prairie, farm fields, rolling hills and kettles to beautiful pine and hardwood forests and a multitude of crystal clear lakes (currently frozen).
I digress- my linen is a beautiful cream colored 32 count Zweigart linen. I plan to work 2 over 2 with Anchor floss and my new found gem of a needle- the DMC gold tapestry. Smoooooooth.
Can't wait to place my first stitch. The weather for the weekend is perfect for stitching- ie not missing anything outside....I 'll post my progress.
happy St Patrick's Day to everyone and a very happy birthday (Sunday) to my dear friend KathieB.
