A Little More Mary Roe

We just got back from South Carolina on Monday.  We went up there to find a place to rent and I think we found one.  We'll move back in about a month before school starts.  I worked on Mary Roe a lot in the car on the way up.

Mary Roe 1808
40 ct. Vintage Lt. Examplar, Belle Soie (1 over 2)

I just love this funky lady!

Close up

I'm almost halfway done now.  I just need to do couple more motifs and then the flower vine and verse.  I made one little change - I ended up using Vanilla Pudding instead of Tumbleweed.  My Tumbleweed dye-lot was a little too dark and gray.

  7. Nicole, your "Mary Roe" is indeed beautiful ... her colors are yummy and she does look like she's fun! Your stitching, as always, is perfect!

    I wish I could stitch in the car like you do ... wonder if I can find a car plug for my magnifying lamp?!! ;)
