Happy Dance!

This was a quick stitch! I started it on Sunday evening and finished it on Monday evening. This will be a gift for a friend whose son is serving in Iraq. I'm planning to get it framed before I give it to her.

Birds of a Feather - Pray for Peace
  • 35 count white linen
  • Stitched with one strand of floss over two threads
  • Used recommended overdyed threads (Weeks)


    I was surprised to find a package from Lelia in my mailbox the other day! She sent me a lovely piece of cream Belfast linen. Hmmmm, what shall I do with it? :)

    I've admired this BoaF design since I first saw it, and I love how you've done it. It is a very thoughtful and loving gift for your friend. I hope her son finds his way home, safely, soon.

    That's a perfect, thoughtful gift for a friend with a son serving in the military. She'll appreciate this gift so much.

    Cream Belfast linen is a classic! The possibilities astound the imagination. :D

    I love the Pray for Peace you've stitched. A very thoughtful gift!

    Pray for Peace is lovely. Nice job.

    Would you be interested in an informal SAL - Red Desert Scissor Pocket ... maybe start Oct 10th or 11th or 12th? Myrna & I were thinking to get moving on it.

    I sorta thought you & Barbara also had that pattern.

    Please advise
