Stitching: New Start!

Well I couldn't just work Alice... and I wanted a new stitch in hand fabric piece. 
So, much to my hubby's chagrin (he wants Alice done tomorrow, lol); I started a new piece!
I think hubby forgives me as I took this one 100% from my stash! 

On: 32ct Relic Linen (that is gorgeous!!!). 
Design by: Elizabeth Foster 
Design name: Antique Celtic Sampler 
Threads: All Weeks Dye Works
Stitches 2 threads over 2 

Here's the start: 

For once an overdyed linen that photographs well!! 

And here's what the final piece will look like:

This brings me up to four pieces I'm actively working on: 
- Alice - HAED (28ct, 1 over 1)
- Mermaid - Mirabillia (28ct, 2 over 2)
- Sugar skull - Mill Hill kit (perforated paper)
- Here there be Monsters (this one! 32ct, 2 over 2)

As usual I rename my projects to something that represents what each item looks like. 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments on Page 1 of Alice. I've actually got almost 1/3 of the next page done already!! Part of why I made this start. I am justifying it as 'deserved'. Lol! 
Happy Stitching!

I adore the new start. Oh, and I am really looking forward to more update pictures of Alice. She is a favorite of mine. Happy stitching! --Andrea
