The Old Cupboard Door - William Michael Harnett
Stitched by Elodium, Burgundy, France on 18-count aida

May 9, 2017 “I have just finished another line on the "Cupboard door". I'm getting slower, because I put it aside for a while for another project. So I have reached the half-way mark and should continue with a little bit more energy - so keen to see it finished!”

The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone - Thomas Moran
Stitched by Sarah, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

April 18, 2017 “I live in Wyoming, hence the choice of subject. It's been an almost spiritual experience stitching it because Yellowstone is my church-in-the-mountains. I have the Manet lady at a bar bookmarked for next SQ project, so very different! I looked at another version of the same lady on Artecy but the detail and colors are so much nicer on SQ. Start date February 2016 and about halfway through now. It's on 18 ct aida. Love the large print, even though I'm 33 and have good vision...it's just easier. I do a page then do a smaller project, then a page, then a smaller project, and so on. I'd be done if I worked on it solidly, but I need to change up the colors every now and again!”

Heliodore’s Woodstar and a Pink Orchid (detail) - Martin Johnson Heade
Stitched by Zac Carter, Las Vegas, Nevada on 18-count

April 8, 2017 “Decided to try something a little "simpler" after the Mucha. Working up close on 18ct, the details aren't nearly as striking as they are at arm's length. As a finished piece, I think it turned out quite well. Thanks again for the patterns, and I am starting the next one using the app [SQ Stitch], so hopefully that goes well!”

B is for Basket
Stitched by Georgene Birchett on 14-count aida

March 27, 2017 “My Mom is Georgene Birchett- she has completed several of your pieces. She turned 90 on the 26th (March) and just days before completed the very large "B is for Basket". Mom had a stroke several years back and her right side was effected. She was right handed but after her stroke she taught herself to write with her left hand. It's never been perfect but she definitely does not give up easily! She completed the whole piece by Jesee Wilcox Smith with her left hand, which looks amazing. Another hurdle she has been working on overcoming is Macular Degeneration...So not only did she complete the piece using her left hand, but she also did it with one "good" eye.”


Flora - Edward Burne-Jones
Stitched by C. Pryer, Quebec, Canada on aida

March 23, 2017 “Here is a picture of my progress with Flora. It is so much faster to complete with your new program [SQ Stitch].”

Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue - Utagawa Kuniyoshi
Stitched by Lorraine Wiener, Rancho Palos Verdes, California on 18-count needlepoint canvas with 2 strands, continental stitch

February 14, 2017 “I have been working two years so far on the Miyamoto Musashi Killing a Giant Nue pattern through my cancer (melanoma) surgery and treatment. As you can see, I have added several colors, changed some stitches and have tried to make it my individual creation. I figure I have at least a year to go on it.”

Stitched by Arlene Thompson on 18-count aida

December 15, 2016 “September 2016 - I began this in September 2015 and worked on it every day for a year. This has been such a joy to work on and the finished product is truly a work of art. I was so motivated to stitch away as I could see this coming to life. This is a true heirloom, which my youngest of two daughters will be receiving. I have just ordered "Song of the Angels" and am excited to begin this new project. Thank you Scarlet Quince for all the instructions and "how to's"!

I retired last August and have worked on it daily since then. My niece picked out the pattern as something she wanted. She is a funeral director. It seems appropriate.”

October 13, 2016 “I just wanted to send a quick thank you to your website for your wonderful patterns. Almost 1 1/2 years ago I finished my labor-of-love project, Marianne Stokes' Madonna & Child. It took me 11 months working on it every free moment I had, but I absolutely loved how it turned out. Unfortunately the pictures don't do the project justice. Please keep turning out such wonderful patterns.”

Summer - Alphonse Mucha
Stitched by Teresa Price, San Jose, California on 18-count aida

August 29, 2016 “I finished Mucha's Summer yesterday. I worked on it for 5 years, 2 months, and 13 days. This is the biggest project I've attempted and when I ordered it I had no idea how much entertainment I'd get for the money. I bought 3 patterns at the same time. Clearly I didn't realize I was buying 15 years of entertainment for about $75.”

Stitched by Georgie Perrott, Enfield, England on 18-count aida

Stitched by Blanca Ramos on 32-count linen

June 21, 2016 “In 2013, I shared with you my cross stitch work on "Still life of flowers and fruits" by Eugene-Adolphe Chevalier, and since then, I have been working on "Virginetť" by Guillaume Seignac on linen 32c, which turned out very pretty, it took me 2 years and 9 months to complete it, required a lot of concentration! but again, enjoyed every minute of my work! Here, I am sharing it with you, hope you like it! Thanks again for your excellent service!”


Silver - Albert Moore
Stitched by Angela Gray, Dunedin, New Zealand on 16-count

June 14, 2016 “This is my first Scarlet Quince pattern "Silver" by Albert Joseph Moore (MOO002). It has taken me just over a year and I stitched it on 16 count fabric. I have loved the entire project and the detail in the pattern is amazing. The picture does not do it justice but walking into the room I smile every time, as it is a stunning work of art. Thank you for the hours of enjoyment this pattern has given me. I have already started my next pattern "Interior of Tintern Abby, Monmouthshire" J.M.W Turner(TUR002).”


Fetching the Tree
Stitched by Sue M., Richfield, Wisconsin on 18-count aida

June 9, 2016 “Just finished the SQ pattern Fetching the Tree and it is absolutely charming! I did it on 18 count Aida and since there is a lot of white background decided to stitch it on an off-white making it a little easier to see the white stitches. This pattern took less than a year to complete even though there were stretches of time when I did not work on it. (Far fewer confetti stitches compared to a Monet!) Thanks for the great pattern selection, now I just need to decide which one will be next!”


Saint Cecilia in Ecstasy - Simon Vouet
Stitched by Jeanette Darmanin, Spring Hill, Florida on 18-count aida

May 12, 2016 “Here is an update on St Cecelia. I work on her every day. She is slowly coming along. This is the last update I will be sending you until it is finished, because I do not want to keep rolling and unrolling it. I will send you pictures when it is finished and framed.”

Rosa Campanulata alba - Pierre-Joseph Redoute
Stitched by Suzanne Goolsby, Parker, Colorado on 18-count aida

January 26, 2016 “I started it 4 1/2 years ago, when it first appeared on Scarlet Quince, and have finished two larger projects (on "deadline"--for gifts) in the meantime. I should finish sometime this February. I have also mastered pinhole thread attachment and blending; need more parking practice as I still prefer to "color by symbol"; and I will have to figure out railroading with my next project. Love the challenge--it's like Sudoku with a finished product! I have never had anyone ask to post my unfinished work before, so here it is. I'll send it again framed. If you are contemplating your first SQ pattern-as I did for years before I finally jumped--any Redoute is a good choice.”


Bouquet of Flowers with a Bird's Nest - Cornelis Van Spaendonck
Stitched by Connie Guenther, Coos Bay, Oregon

January 24, 2015 “Here's my latest project, framed but not hanging on the wall yet. It was a joy to work on it. It took one year and 1/2 to do it. I am starting to look for my next one.”

The Great Wave off Kanagawa - Hokusai
Stitched by Susie Salisbury, Canberra, Australia on 40-count linen (over 2)

November 6, 2015 “I used even weave linen. I am not 100% sure of the thread count, but I have counted 20 stitches to the inch -- so my guess is 40 threads to the inch. I wanted a small embroidery. I am particularly happy with the framing -- Antoinette specialises in framing (ie lacing) embroideries and she gives well excellent advice as to the framing options. ”

The Hailstorm - Thomas Hart Benton
Stitched by Cathy Leahy, Havre, Montana on 14-count aida with 4 strands

September 29, 2015 “Here is a picture of my Hailstorm project. It's not a good picture. I'll see if I can do better. My daughter wanted it quite large, so did it on 14 count Aida. Two threads didn't fill it well so I went to four threads (3 would have been good, but obviously not possible with blended colors. It worked beautifully, but I had to be pretty disciplined about not leaving holes to come back to, as it was hard to get all that thread through already full holes. That led to a lot of needle parking and I had to loop the thread through the needles, rather than having tails. But using the four threads (two of each color) sure did ensure that both colors were always visible. It was a challenge and a lot of fun. Thanks again.”

The Torn Hat - Thomas Sully
Stitched by Irina Lapko on 26-count canvas with 2 threads and half cross stitch

May 25, 2015 “I would like to share my new embroidery The Torn Hat. I had this early 19th c French frame and wanted to use for the embroidery. So to fit it in I had to embroider on 26-count canvas using half cross stitch and two threads. The size of my embroidery is about 7.5" x 9". I spent two month and three days working on it almost every day. I think this portrait and the frame is a perfect match as they belong to the same period of time.”

Cluny Tapestry Rabbit II
Stitched by Sabrina, Pennsylvania

February 27, 2015 “Finally, I finished the Cluny tapestry rabbit II, after 2 years of work!

Starting the number I now, see you in about 2 years.... again!”

Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose - John Singer Sargent
Stitched by Lucia Rossetto, Italy on 14-count ecru aida

November 1, 2014 “Here is the progress of my work. I've always loved this picture and when I saw your pattern, I had no doubts in my choice. Unfortunately this work is quite far beyond my ability, but the results are really wonderful. I didn't touch this work for several months - years - but I hope to manage to stitch the second child. Too beautiful work to let it unfinished. Thanks for your work.”

Cluny Tapestry Rabbit
Stitched by elodiem, France on 18-count aida

October 29, 2014 “Here is a second one of them together. Still undecided about how to frame them and display them... I have started on "The Old Cupboard Door", with an embroidery frame this time, to avoid deformation of the fabric. I havenít told my husband what it is, see how he reacts when the pattern emerges... For the moment, itís just the edge of the door, so nothing visible, of course!”

Two Sisters (On The Terrace) - Pierre Auguste Renoir
Stitched by Kathy Tabb, Interlochen, Michigan on 18-count aida

October 21, 2014 “Renoir's "Two Sisters on the Terrace" took almost 4 years to do, stitching almost every day. On 18-count Aida with some of the fabric used as the border. I just love it! I used 2 strands of DMC on this cream-colored Aida. Magnifying glasses helped a lot for these old eyes. The picture has great memories of the reproduction painting my mother had in her home for years. I had previously stitched Van Goghís "Starry Night" from your collection and it has a prominent place in my home. Am now beginning "B is for Basket", and hoping to give it to an as-yet-to-be-conceived great-granddaughter! I figure if this one takes me 3 or 4 years to stitch, it will give my granddaughter time to get married and have that baby! If she has a boy, Iím in big trouble!”

W is for Wind - Jessie Willcox Smith
Stitched by Denise, New Jersey on 18-count white aida

July 7, 2014 “I began stitching this at the end of May, 2014. I learned to begin a cross stitch project from the center of the chart and have done so here - maybe I'll start in the upper left hand corner on my next SQ chart! I agree with my fellow stitchers in that the depth and richness of the colors are not easily captured in a photograph - it is more beautiful in person.”


Lady with Unicorn: Sense of Taste
Stitched by Judy Arsenault, Prince Edward Island, Canada

May 15, 2014 “This certainly was a challenge. At one point, the left edge got caught in the vacuum and put a couple of holes around the edge near the stitching. I was so upset, I didn't touch it for a few months, but eventually got it mended and finished.” [Note: this is the original UNK008, which has been replaced by UNK008-S.]


Foxes - Franz Marc
Stitched by Kathy Sebesta, Winchester, Kentucky on 32-count Permin linen

April 23, 2014 “I was looking at your gallery updates and realised I somehow didn't send you my pix when they were finally framed. Many apologies. Here is The Foxes, done as a wedding present for my son and daughter-in-law. I wish I could get a picture that does the reds and russets justice but I just can't. You'll have to take my word that it is absolutely spectacular and has pride of place in their home.”

April 23, 2014 “My grandparents had a copy of this picture hanging in their dining room when I was growing up. I've always loved this picture and when I saw your pattern, I knew I had to stitch it. This project took more than a year to stitch, but the results were well worth the effort. It's now framed and hanging in my family room where it evokes memories of my grandparents every time I look at it.”

It consists of 59,986 stitches on 18 count aida and uses 110 colors. The detail is quite intricate and the colors are absolutely beautiful. It took my mother 5 months to complete this project, working mostly full time on it. By the way, Mom is 84 years old! I can only hope my projects turn out half as well as hers when I'm her age.”

Now that I'm "semi-retired", I hope to have more time to stitch on a regular basis. After it is framed, I'm giving it as a gift to my best friend and her husband, who have an organic olive orchard and sell olive oils. I enjoyed every single stitch in the pattern and I'm getting ready to start my next Scarlet Quince pattern: "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt (KLI0011). Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns!!”

December 11, 2010 “Completed Girl with a Pearl Earring (without background), pattern VER004-B using 18 ct. white aida and 2 strands of floss. It took 9 months and is now ready to be framed. I started the project on black aida cloth but found it was difficult to see the stitching so started over on white and then stitched the background in black floss. I did enlarge the pattern pages and then taped them together because I like to see "the entire picture". This was the first time I stitched in horizontal rows instead of vertical and was amazed to find I like it better. Love your patterns and now have the fun of choosing the next one!”

Fashion Shop - August Macke
Stitched by Kathy Steiglitz, Virginia on 18-count aida

August 24, 2012 “I started the Fashion Shop by Macke and had finished 3 panels when I realized that I had cut the material too short. We discussed adding some material but that there would be a bump. That was July 2009 and I didn't pick it up again, to start all over until January of 2011. We had purchased a Lazy Boy chair that is a little art deco and I knew that that cross stitch was the perfect pattern for a pillow for that chair. Since I decided on an actual place for the pillow I started it up again. It was pretty discouraging to do the first 3 panels all over again, but I did. Here's the great pillow. It cost $85. After my fiasco of material being too short, it took me 18 months to complete.”

March 20, 2012 “I am on the home straight of doing "Half sick of Shadows" said The Lady of Shalott. Nearly finished, reckon another six months. I am very proud of it. I get up and do an hour before work and at least two when I get home, as it is my way of unwinding. The weekends are a different story, depending what's on but at least four to five hours per day. I started it on the 11th October 2010... .I am doing this on 18 count aida fabric. Thank you Scarlet Quince, my son found your site and gave me the pattern of THE LACEMAKER which took me 12 months and is beautiful,,,, thank you for all my relaxing hours just stitching away on beautifully detailed graphs.”

February 21, 2012 “Here is my completed Sunrise in Yosemite by Albert Bierstadt (Your BIE001). It took 35 months to complete on 18-count white Aida. From a distance most people think it's a painting. I use stitching as my principal form of relaxing after a long day staring at a computer monitor. Stitching forces you to clear your mind and focus on reading the chart and counting. My grandmother taught me, and I understand now why she enjoyed it so much.”

Now I can turn my attention to the other two patterns I am working on, Take the Fair Face of Woman by Sophie Anderson, and Sense of Hearing, one of the Lady and the Unicorn patterns.

Stitched by Kathy Sebesta, Winchester, Kentucky on 32-count black Belfast linen over 2

November 8, 2011 “Here's the final. My daughter got it at her wedding last weekend and everyone was stunned. I always frame behind non-glare glass - I find that that glass blurs the stitches just the tiniest bit so that the cross-stitch looks like a painting or a photo. Not one person there realized it was sewn. And of course the framing made it extra-spectacular. Anyway, thanx for making the pattern available, and for allowing me to make such a special gift.”

Stitching began on September 29, 2010, and was finished on November 5, 2011 - working an average of 2 hours a day. The detail is incredible - especially the reflection in the tin pail. I loved working on it, and can't wait to begin the next one (Violin and Music by William M. Harnett) to hang above my piano when it's completed. Thanks again for your fabulous patterns and your wonderful website! I'll send you an updated photo of the Apples in a Tin Pail once it's framed.

It was made for my mother, although I don't go back to her house until next summer so I get a year to enjoy, sorry mom! My lesson learned. Keep your hands clean that white aida is unforgiving! Learn the pinhead stitch it is wonderful, it made this project so much easier. I am awaiting more aida (drat, 18 count not available locally have to order online) to begin on pattern MUC013 Poppies, this one's mine mom!”

June 22, 2011 “Attached is a photo of a recently completed SQ pattern, La Belle Dame Sans Merci by Sir Frank Dicksee. Stitched on 18 count Aida, it took almost 5 years to complete. I worked on it at least one hour most every evening in my wind-down time. As it was coming to completion, I stitched on it even more! It was neat watching it come together. I really enjoy doing these masterpieces.”


The Promise - Morgan Weistling
Stitched by Laraine Harris, Carlsbad, New Mexico on 18-count aida

June 14, 2011 “I started the Promise on 14 ct. After 800 hours, I saw that it didn't look as good as it would on 18ct. So, I cut it up and started over on 18 ct. This is the 18ct. It took me 2,185 hours to do this one. The next time I am going to us 26 needle instead of 24. I am trying a smaill project on 32 evenweave. If it doesn't drive me completely crazy I will do my next big project on 32 with size 26 needle. My next project is going to be Kissing the Face of God. I really like Morgan Weistling's work.”

Blue and Green Music - Georgia O'Keeffe
Stitched by Julie, Montclair, Virginia on 16-count aida

April 10, 2011 “I finally received the finished Blue and Green Music, Georgia O'Keeffe, back from the framers. Of course, they didn't really take so long; it just seemed like it! It took me 10 months, on 16 count Aida. A picture can't do this one justice. There are wonderful harmonies of color, synchronicities of shading, and counterpoints of shadow that can't be duplicated by film or pixels. I am enchanted by the finished piece. I have made a good start on the Bierstadt, The Domes of the Yosemite, and find that I'm having trouble doing necessary home maintenance; I want to keep stitching! Thanks you, as always, for the hours of enjoyment you provide.”


Winter - Alphonse Mucha

Nighthawks - Edward Hopper
Stitched by Barbara Miller, northwest Indiana on 32-count linen, over 2

March 10, 2011 “Well, after 35 months of nightly cross-stitching, I finished it. I stitched Nighthawks on 32 count linen. I was fortunate enough to have the honor of bringing it to the Art Institute in Chicago where the Chicago Tribune did an article on my accomplishment! I used a Q-snap and then had that on my stand. Since there was so much excess fabric, I used hair clips to roll it up so it wouldn't get dirty. It really was an amazing pattern to do and overwhelming to hold it up to the original.”

Souls being Received into the Heavenly Paradise - Edward Burne-Jones
Stitched by Eleanor Cave, Tasmania on 18-count aida

September 20, 2010 “This is one year's work. This is my first Scarlet Quince pattern and even though it's large, having only 23 different colours makes it a fantastic introduction to your patterns as it's not too much to juggle. I'm really enjoying it - particularly in winter when it keeps me company while my partner watches Aussie Rules footy!”

This picture was taken at our latest needlearts exhibit by a friend. Doesn't look as good as it does out in the sunlight. Thanks for charting this.”


Still Life of Flowers and Fruits II - Eugene-Adolphe Chevalier

May 22, 2010 “After about 4-5 years of extremely enjoyable cross stitching, I have finished the Still Life of Flowers and Fruits II by Eugene Adolphe Chevalier. It was stitched over 2 on 32 count linen. This has to be the absolute best work I have ever stitched. I am looking forward to my next project, which is Vine by John Henry Dearle. Thank you so much for making these beautiful pieces of art available as patterns!”

Woman Bathing in a Shallow Tub - Edgar Degas
Stitched by Julie, Montclair, Virginia on 16-count aida

May 16, 2010 “This took about 14 months. In summation, many thanks for your site. I had become quite bored with the standard cross-stitch patterns available (I consider there to be 4 basic categories: country/folk art, cute animals, inspirational, and floral). Your wonderful patterns and the ability to work on something other than the big 4 listed above just excites me to no end. The biggest problem I have is deciding which piece to do next!”


Rosa eglanteria - Pierre-Joseph Redoute
Stitched by Kate Tanner on 32-count Belfast linen

April 26, 2010 “Thought you might like to see the latest work, Rosa Eglanteria. This was stitched on 32 Count Belfast linen. This was done in double quick time for a Golden Wedding present. Really had to put the hours into this to get it finished in time. Often putting in 4-6 hours a day. Again really pleased with the finished result. I am just about to start on the Sunflower seen from the back & I am sure that I will be just as pleased with this.”

This photo shows it like it is nowadays. Now I have begun to embroider THE KISS by Francesco Hayez.”

The Virgin in Prayer - Sassoferrato
Stitched by Nancy Fritsche, Monroe, Louisiana on 18-count fiddler cloth

April 17, 2010 “I am sending two copies of the latest of your patterns I have finished. I started this on Feb. 15, right after breast cancer surgery, and finished all that I intended to complete yesterday, April 16. I decided to allow the pattern to sort-of fade out on the bottom instead of being solid all across. I used 18 count fiddler cloth and stitched a square of gold thread cross stitches and one square of half-cross stitches around her head to offer some contrast. I have three more patterns that I intend to stitch. Your products offer such satisfaction at the conclusion of the stitching. Thank you so much. ”

Anemones and Lilacs in a Blue Vase - Odilon Redon
Stitched by Hallie Wake, Pleasanton, California on 18-count aida

February 21, 2010 “I made Anemones and Lilacs in a Blue Vase by Odilon Redon into a pillow, using 18 count Aida. I used the sewing method and it took me about four months of stitching about 4-5 hours a day. (The "sewing method" is when you make the needle go down and back up in one motion so that your sewing hand stays on top of the fabric; and the "stabbing method" (not the most pleasant name!) is when you push the needle to the back, bring your hand around to the back to pull it through, then push the needle up to the front again in a separate motion. I have always used the sewing method whenever possible, i.e. when there are several stitches of the same color close together. It's twice as fast when I can keep my hand on top and go down and up in one stitch. But I guess you can't do that when you have your work on a frame since you need to bend the fabric enough to get the needle through. I was worried that not using a frame would mean the final product would come out lumpy but it doesn't, especially when it is put into a decorative frame at the end. I hold a single dowel in my left hand with the left edge of the Aida fabric wrapped around it while I sew with my right hand from right to left.)”

Circe Invidiosa - John William Waterhouse
Stitched by Emma (emmadragon), Huncote, UK on 18-count dove gray aida

February 1, 2010 “Here is Circe after one month of stitching. The first page of chart is complete, and the second one started. It has been very..well...brown, for want of a better description! The next page has the top of Circe's head, so hopefully it will be more interesting. It will probably be another three month's stitching before I get onto her face and upper body, when the lovely blues will start to appear. I'm putting her away now, for a month of Michelangelo's Last Judgement and then back to the Bird of God. It will be April before I pick her up again.”

Faith became sight today -- it now hangs on my wall and is exquisitely beautiful. I used cream colored 14 ct. aida and enjoyed every stitch I took. I have now started another of your patterns -- this one for a dear friend.”

Gentleman Writing a Letter - Gabriel Metsu
Stitched by JoAnne Nantz, JoAnne Nantz Needleworks & Framing, Holiday, Florida on 28-count Jobelan Pewter with 2 strands of floss, over 2

September 16, 2009 “I used a 28ct. Jobelan Pewter. I stitched over two! Reason being, (1) I have cataracts now and for the past two years they have been getting worse, plus I knew it was going to be hanging up high in the shop for a long time before I bring him home. (I have a big Dutch theme throughout most of the living areas in my home, so he will fit in nicely.) (2) Being that I operate a stitch shop, I needed to prove to some "doubting thomases" that they can stitch ANY pattern on ANY count, etc., etc. It took me 32 months to complete, BUT I stitched about 15 other assorted designs for displays in my shop during this period of time. In addition to all the stitching I do, I also do all the framing for me and the shop - all custom framing- so, I am a busy bee, but I usually am able to put at least 4-7 hours ea. day (and night!! ha!) to do stitching. My email is nantzjm at msn.com -- I never mind answering questions.” (original picture had a light fixture reflected in it -- this is an update without the reflection -- SQ)


Miranda - Sir Frank Dicksee
Stitched by Heather Aquilino, Northern Virginia on 18-count aida

October 11, 2009 “This is the first Scarlet Quince pattern I have finished, and I have never been happier with my finished piece. The patterns are easy to follow and stunning in their detail. It is very important that you continue stitching the pattern onto the next page, and do not stitch one page at a time. I did not realize this until I saw my finished piece and there were page lines I cannot get out, no matter how many times I ironed it. I chose a dark wooden frame, because it reminded me the wooden railings of a ship. I am working on Sloop by Winslow Homer next and cannot wait to see how it turns out.”

It really inspires me to keep going. I am amazed at how quickly some of the others seem to be able to stitch. I hope to finish the next row in less time now that I have gotten used to working with blended colors. I'm already trying to decide which pattern I want to do next!”

Sunflower Seen from the Back - Daniel Froeschl
Stitched by K. Stieglitz, Annandale, Virginia on 18-count aida

February 18, 2009 “I’ve been working on this Sunflower for 2 years. I made it a pillow so I filled in the background with ecru. When I only had the background left, I started a new pattern and saved this for my trips and visits to my mom. It was so convenient just bringing ecru and a hoop and needle. I really loved doing it. From now on all my work is going to pillows. They are a lot cheaper to finish and I have no more wall space!”
