Finally.. A finish!!

  I haven't posted here in forever!!  I stitch and stitch but it seems like I don't actually get anything finished.  I started Elizabeth with the Facebook SAL at the beginning of the year and she is finally finished!!  Please excuse her wrinkles and folds.

40 ct. Lakeside Maritime white
with NPS conversion of my own

I love the pink accents in this one and the acorn motif at the bottom is one I had never seen before!
   On to the next!  I have Dorothy Walpole stitched down to the floral section and she will move into the spot in the rotation left by Elizabeth.  I hope to have a finish of Dorothy this year too!

Lady and the Castle - fabric info

Hi all -

It has taken a while but I've finally finished all of the flora and fauna.

Now just lots of background to do and the lettering at the bottom.

The pattern has an outside border that you can see in a stunning version on the American Needlepoint Guild website. (click on the picture to enlarge)  Haven't decided if I'm going to do it or not. I don't see the border in the SL website picture and I very much like how that version looks framed.

I know most everyone has moved to facebook. Perhaps I might too some day. My thanks to Nicola and Jo for keeping these blogs going for now.

There was a question in the comments about what fabric I'm using. This is a SL silk kit purchased in 1996 (copyright year of the pattern). The description is simply 35-count linen.
