Margaret Harris finis

Margaret Harris - design by Blackbird Designs from Honeysuckle Manor book
Unknown Silkweavers linen
Using: DMC 4160, GA Carmel Corn, GA Shutter Green, WDW Red Pear, WDW Juniper

I finished up Margaret H this morning on the way into work. She is now Margaret K! :-) I would like to add my birth year but I doubt if I ever get around to it. I'm ready to move on. I had been planning on doing the other piece right away but the border on this took forever and I'm not ready for another one just right now. For the ride home tonight I'm going to start a Shepherd's Bush design - Dresser Drawer Hearts. I've loved this piece for some time now and I purchased the kit off eBay several months ago for just a few dollars. I love a good deal. I have an agility trial this weekend and I'm hoping to get some stitching done while I'm there. I only have Clancy running so there is plenty of down time.

It looks lovely! My book arrived yesterday and I want to do this one too - but I'll probably start on the other one first :)

Gorgeous finish! Congrats!!!

It's wonderful Margie!!! I really need to stitch one of those pieces from that book. And can't wait to see your new start! I did that a few years ago for my DD's bedroom and it was a really fun stitch!

Very nice. I like how you changed it to your name and city.

Margaret said...

Beautiful finish! Now see, I should have taken advantage of the Margaret name too, but I blew it by putting my grandmother's name instead. lol! I feel the same way about the other piece -- I want to stitch it at some point, but not now. :D

Happy Easter to you and the pugsters.
