I have fallen in love with Little House Needleworks. I ordered "Strong and Beautiful" from the women of virtue series. As soon as I saw this piece, I knew that I needed to put my youngest daughter's name on it. She is strong and beautiful. I would like to do the whole series and make one for my oldest daughter and stepdaughter, too. "Strong and Beautiful" is the first time that I have worked with silk thread. I didn't use linen for my piece. I ordered antique white linen aida 14 count. I think that it suits the piece. I got the kit in the mail on Saturday and I am at least a fourth of the way done. I will take a pic and post soon. My Little House mania has caused me to go off the deepend and order the current 8 monthly ornaments and join a SAL to stitch these. The patterns should be here by the end of the week. Then I may get some linen for these. I have stitched for years on aida, so we will see how the linen work goes. I have also signed up for a bookmark exchange on my ILCS group. That should be a lot of fun. I think exchanging items with cross stitchers around the country and around the globe will be exciting. Happy Stitching everyone and thank you for the comments that you leave. I really appreciate them!
