finally!

Here is my start to Christmas gift #1 - also know as State Fair from the American Quilt Collection by Laura J. Perin. I'm stitching all six on 24 count congress cloth using one strand of DMC #8 and Caron Wildflowers. While it's a bit large for the train (12 x 12) I'm going to give it a go any way. I'm way behind but I have a feeling these are going to go quick. The above stitching only took me 20 minutes. And as each piece gets more filled out the more flow I will find and they will end up going quicker as the piece progresses. :-) I like that.

That is really pretty Margie. It looks like you got a lot accomplished in 20 minutes. Hope that it works out doing these on the train.

Looks great so far! With the larger count, I bet it's great for the train too.

You did ALL that in 20 minutes? Maaan, you're a speedy stitcher, I'd say!
