Hillside School of Handworke

It's nice to have this piece finished!  I had good intentions to finish it in 2012, but just plain ran out of stitching time.  I'm keeping the year "2012" as stitched; the majority of it was stitched in 2012 anyway!

Sounds like it is going to be a wild weekend for weather.  To my stitching friends on the East Coast, stay warm and stay safe.  We are expecting our own storm here in Minnesota on Sunday into Monday.  Hopefully we will only receive about six inches of snow, but it will still make for a messy commute to work on Monday.

Thanks all for your kind comments on Mrs. Szigethy's embroidery.  Her daughter promises to send us more pictures next week!

It is completely lovely. And after a closeup look I can see all the work that went into it. With the border and house alone it is a major project and this has so much more. Congratulations. CJ in OK

This one turned out so pretty! I have this in my stash and tried (unsuccessfully) to sell it.

Now I am going to rethink selling it.
Well done!
