Quaker Virtues

I am so excited! I was visiting Vonna's blog the other day and noticed that she and a couple of her friends were stitching this in a SAL. I immediately emailed and asked if I could join. I have wanted to stitch this one for a while. I've chosen 36ct flax linen and I've hand dyed my own fiber that I've named "Old Demin". Well, soon and very soon, I will put in my first stitches! But until then,here is a sneak peak of my fiber and floss.

Thank you Nicole for starting the blog!!

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to our new home! :) I hope you like the layout. I tried to find something with red because I know how much Amy likes red!

Well, I have decided to give my Quaker Virtues a new home. I'm going to be sending it to Debby. She kept saying how much she liked the colors, and I decided I really wanted to concentrate on Quaker Christmas, so I decided to send it to her. She is going to SAL with us! :)

Here's my latest progress pic on Quaker Christmas....

Quaker Christmas as of 2/25/09

I'm stitching it on 40 ct. Vintage Examplar by Lakeside Linens with Belle Soie silks - Cranberry, Collard Greens and Butterscotch. The only thing I don't like about the Belle Soie is that it tends to fuzz up. Other than that I'm very happy with it.
