I say almost since I am not quite done this one. This was the piece I challenged myself with for the Friends Gather Stitch-A-Thon. This piece worked for a bunch of SALs and forums for this month, and once I have it finished it will be my SBEBB lottery piece. I still have to do the hardanger bits on the border (which I am scared of – this will be my first ever hardanger), then it’s done.

I used Bravo by Rainbow Gallery for the floss and it worked beautifully with this fabric, I think.
Today is Monday and I have put a few stitches in to TW’s Woodland Faerie. The night is young, though – I will stitch some more and post an image tomorrow!
BTW, Isabelle (and others who are wondering…) – Saskatoon berries are lovely sweet purple berries – very juicy and very delicious in pies, jams, with a tad bit of whipped cream, etc. The only place I know of where they grow is in the Canadian praries, but I imagine they do grow elsewhere. I have never heard of any other name for them, so if anyone knows, please let me know! Many a summer was spent bucket in hand, picking these treats. When we were little, we couldn’t figure out how Mom knew we were eating more than we were picking – our mouths were the tell-tale purple! Even as an adult, not much gets in the pail!
