If you look closely, in the bottom right had side, you will see a needle and thread, below the pond. Marsha mentioned the original she found a needle and thread, when she unframed the antique. Here is a close-up.
Also, I received my Eleanor Parr, but can't decide if I should put down Frances Marshall. I'll probably work hard to finish Frances, after the holidays.
I am excited to work Eleanor. I picked a 45count linen, with the antique silk conversion. I am going to stitch the two young ladies in stem stitch. After talking with Nicola, we both thought this would look lovely.
Looking forward to Our New Year Together.
