Quaker Harmony and a wonderful exchange!~~

Yippee!!! Quaker Harmony is complete!!!...Let me tell you, if you haven't done anything by My Big Toe, you are missing out! Their charts are easy to follow, accurate and just fun to do! Here is my finished piece...I used the specified overdyes on 32 ct flax linen...Yeah!~ Another one is out of the WIP basket!~~
AND, isn't this the cutest pinkeep you have ever seen??? Angela of hookedonstitches.blogspot.com sent this to me as part of our LHN exchange...Thanks so very much Angela! Your finishing is impeccable and I love the pale green 28ct Water Lily Lugana. You will see she spoiled me by including a couple overdye flosses, a calendar, a magnet and the sweetest note. Anything handmade by others is truly special to me...So, thank you my friend! I love it!~

Here's hoping everyone has a great week. With all the chaos in this world today, take time to be respectful of others, to give a hand to others in need and in the Quaker spirit, live in harmony.

Hugs from N.Carolina, Faye

Quaker Harmony is BEAUTIFUL! I'm now adding that to my wish list. I know it will be some time before I'm able to add it to my stash since my diet is limited by DH's lack of a job. But, once he gets back in the workforce this will be the first one on my list! Thanks for the enhancement experience and congrats on your finish.
