Primitive Hornbook

I purchased this beautiful hornbook from my blog friend in Italy, Argante.
Her website is The Primitive Hare and she has all kinds of goodies for the primitive stitcher.
She makes these in Black or Natural and you can also purchase them through ABC Stitch Therapy.

  I wanted to design a simple cross stitch piece especially to go on this wonderful hornbook.
It's stitched on stained 30 ct linen with DMC floss.
BTW... Don't you just love her bunny tag.
If your interested in this soon to be released pattern, drop me an email.

On another note. It's rain, rain rain, here in Philly.  I'm kind of glad cause the gardens could use it.
And it's just another excuse to stay in and stitch !!!
Happy Saturday All.
Thanks for stopping by.
