I am thrilled to have this done.  There are other smalls that still need to be finished.  I'm going to finish off the scissors fob today and work on the pin cushion.  Thank you to Betsy Morgan for a lovely design.
We are having new windows put in the kitchen.  Luckily we have a warm day for it.  Well, warm for this part of the country.
I've got my fingers crossed that I get into the Embroidery Tour of Scotland and England.  Sign up is at noon.  A
