30 count Weeks Dye Works Dolphin
Substituted NPI silks for Gentle Arts
Emilia, Elizabeth or What I did for my Christmas vacation could have been the title for this post. Stacy Nash released Emilia Poole at the Nashville Needlework Market 2014. It was one of my favorite designs--sure took me long enough to get started stitching, it's almost time for the 2015 market.
There are no Emilia's in my family tree so Emilia will become Elizabeth Plemmons, my Great Great Grandmother. The stitching on the sewing basket is completed.
The pins are holding the sewing basket together and waiting for the trademark Stacy Nash X's joining the inside and bottom.
The Weeks Dye Work Dolphin linen is a beautiful color. It was challenging to locate the linen and worth the effort.
This is the cover of Emilia/Elizabeth's notebook. Due to a
misstep counting error she is missing one leg of her pantaloons. With 2015 arriving in a few short days, I hope to finish this project during some marathon television or football mania.
I purchased some overdyed velveteen and am hoping to make a heart to add to the basket. Stacy recently released another girl design called The Winter Beekeeper Thread Board, she would be a great companion piece.
