A new project - the beginning

Some of you may remember me mentioning that I was soon going to start on a rose-themed project - another hussif.  (You can go HERE to see my original post about it and see the background as it was pieced together).   Over the weekend I started stitching on it and here are the first two seams completed...



In the picture above you can see one of the rose hankies I
had in my collection, with the waste canvas cross-stitched
seam treatment.

Below is another treatment, also done using waste canvas,
and the pretty tatted edging of another hankie.

Today the quote is from Mary Ellen Chase.... "Christmas, children, is not a date.  It's a state of mind"
