A blogging challenge
Last April, Anna of http://www.Stitchbitch.blogspot.com
announced a stitching challenge featuring a free design from plum street samplers (http://www.plumstreetsamplers.typepad.com.
I stitched the chart on pink congress cloth using 1 strand of DMC embroidery floss. I really enjoyed it. I had heard so much about congress cloth that I thought it would be really challenging. I think part of my ease with the project could be attributed to the wonderful foot-candles Needle Nicely has in the shop which is where I stitched this.
Here I have mounted the canvas in a box available from Amanda Lawford. I think the finished product is gorgeous (not being biased, of course).
