A Quaker Finish

Hi, Stitching Friend!

I mentioned in my last post that I’d found my turbo needles. To prove it, here’s another finished piece hot off the press. It is my  pleasure to introduce Willie’s Quaker Square 7, by Monasterium Designs (The Gift of Stitching Issue 29, June 2008).

Willie's Quaker 7 - love that cheeky little bird!

This one, together with my finished Kindness Sampler, is waiting on framing supplies that need to be purchased. In the meantime, I’ve started another quaker in another colour – will keep you posted.

Happy Stitching 😉

    To answer Natalija’s question – I stitched with just good old dependable DMC 115.
