Of Female Arts finis

Of Female Arts by The Primitive Needle
32 count Days Gone By linen by Silkweavers
Premium Examplar Spinach Delight silk by HDF

I finished up with Of Female Arts last night. I haven't been doing much stitching at home the past couple of evenings. Too tired! :-) And not much on the train either. Also too tired and I've been falling asleep. :-) But in any case, this is finished and I love how it turned out. It's the first time I used the primium silk from HDF and I have to say I love it. It just slides in and out of the linen.

I had a major computer meltdown on Monday at work and today is the first chance I've had to post anything. I have a new laptop but it came with Vista and Office 2007 so every is different and frustrating. But I'm sure within a few days all will be well.

That silk must have made for very smooth stitching, because you finished this project in a blink! Lovely work, as always!
