Faye, 'Penny' is beautiful. I saw this chart & thought of you! It's on my next 'to buy' list. I love the Macademia color linen. Jan has out done herself on the design and her linen. I'm looking forward to your finish. Have a super stitching week.

It's really a nice piece. I really like the fireworks. The linen looks good too - I've never used any of the ToL linen.

This is a fabulous WIP...I especially like the "penny rug" border. I continue to be awed by your finishes...not only the expert workmanship but also the high volume.
