It has been quite some time since Eleanor Jaegler has seen the light of day (you can see the older post from April 8), and my homework needs to be done by the end of next week. I dug deep for her, and wanted to remind you what she looked like before I started working on her last night. I am stitching her on 48ct Light Examplar Linen from Lakeside, using 'Colorwash' Handpainted Japanese Silk; 1 strand over 2. I have never used this silk before, and so far no complaints!
I have added my scissors in the picture to give you an idea of her size. She is really quite lovely! I also wanted to tell you that my first Guild meeting on Tuesday night was a hit! I had such a great time, met so many wonderful people and saw a ton of gorgeous pieces during show and tell; also alot of beautiful WIP's. Hello to everyone that I met and thank you for such a warm welcome!!
