My first start of 2010

ByGone Stitches
36ct coffee stained linen
Red Victorian Motto Sampler overdyed threads
I have been SO good about not starting anything new this year I decided to pull out this Quaker that I have been wanting to begin since getting it back in Oct at the Pals Retreat. Very simply done, it will be monochromatic using threads I purchased from Ebay called Victorian Motto Sampler Threads. I really love them!~~
Well, short and sweet today..... Have a happy Tuesday night watching the Olympics!~~ Hugs from North Carolina~~~ Faye
