ABC Hornbook (and the winner)

Here's my ABC Hornbook finish. It was while I was stitching this last month, that the terrible accident happened, which claimed Lisa's life. Such a tragedy, there really are no words. She will be missed.



Design by The Primitive Needle



Stitched on 36 ct. Earthen by Picture This Plus, using recommended WDW and GA threads.


 










Well, I have more Primitive Needle finishes to show, but since this post is picture heavy already, I will save them for later.

The winner (chosen by the random generator thing) of the Remember Me chart is Laurie! Thanks to all who entered the drawing and for everyone that takes the time to leave a kind word :)

Life is short, but LOVE is forever. Love those around you without measure.

Andrea, Your piece is wonderful...Lisa's passing was tragic indeed, but I wonder if she's smiling right now...never realizing the inspiration she gave to so many of us.

It is truly love that makes us happy...may your days be filled with love and joy:)

Great job, Andrea! I love this piece - spilt something on mine (typical of me....) and the threads bled and there was no salvaging it. I love how yours look and Lisa would be proud to know that another of her works has been completed!
