I just love the little girl’s hair ♥
Carol wrote to me: “I started this project as soon as it was shown on your website. It is still not framed, but thought you might enjoy seeing another version of what I am sure will be many, many more versions.
My name is Carol Bianconi and I have avidly been stitching (hardanger and silk ribbon) for the past seven years. The first project I did was the Red Clover Flower Fairy which I entered into a judged Embroidery Guild of America Show in Palos Verdes, California. The piece received a third place.
The Maiden with the Horse received a second place ribbon. This will be submitted in their 2014 Show.
I have also completed the Peacock featured in one of your e mails. Lovely pieces.
I do enjoy your books (all of which I own) and always look forward to your featured project in your emails.”

Enjoy your week everyone and happy stitching
