Margaret Chess sent her "Margaret Harris" piece for us to see. (click on her name to visit her blog) She writes,
"I stitched Margaret on 30ct WDW Straw over one. Since I did the piece over one, I had to change the placement of name and date. I put my maternal grandmother's name in place of "Walnut, Iowa," and I put my maternal grandmother's birthdate in place of Margaret's name. My grandmother was the perfect grandmother to me, so to be able to put her name on this piece was special. Thanks for the idea. And thanks for such wonderful designs as always! I can't wait for your new quilt book."
Sara Hochstein writes, "First, let me tell you how much I enjoy your blog. It's a much needed bright spot after a long day at the office. I've completed the Souvenir of Paris stocking from Joyeux Noel. However, instead of finishing into a stocking (I'm not the greatest "finisher"), I stitched it over one on 25ct and mounted it in a beautiful gold frame I found at Pier 1 Imports. I'm sorry I didn't place a coin or ruler beside the picture to give an idea of the true size. The picture itself is about 2-1/2" x 3". Just adorable!"
Karen V writes, "I thought you might like to see a recent finish of mine of one of your designs, Sweet Heart from Joyeux Noel. I stitched it on 28ct Celery/White checked Graziano linen with a mixture of the recommended GAST and DMC:

And I have to tell you that you ladies have totally out done yourselves with the new book, "Honeysuckle Manor". I am just waiting for my copy. I guess my shop ran out, so I will have to wait another 2 weeks for a copy. Not like I don't have other things to do. LOL.
Thank you all for taking the time to send pictures of your work to me. Barb and I enjoy and are inspired by your work.
