More stitching!

Something Patriotic in the works........
It's very unusual for me to design something and start stitching it right away.
I'm a ponderer....so I look at my newly created design for awhile, sometimes many months, to see if it can be better, if it needs something or needs to be reworked.  
Not all of them get stitched.
This one seems to be just right and needed very little tweaking.  So, linen and floss was picked and I got right to it.

I am really loving this new linen line by Dames of the Needle...It's very old and prim looking.
This is called Peep's Lost Sheep and has a raw-ish gray look to it with some slight staining.
I've also been wanting to use this new Gentle Art color called Ruby Slippers...so  I'm using that and it may possibly be my new favorite red.

It's still exciting for me to see what was in my head come to life.
So, I'll be stitching and I'll keep you posted on this one:)
Smiles, ~Nan

Nice looking sneak peek, Nan! Hmmm, I think I will have to check out that red you mentioned.

Americana designs are my most favorite to stitch ~ I'm sure this one is going to be grand!!!
Can't wait to see the finish!
