Rose had been admiring a BBD that was published years ago in a magazine - I think "Just Cross Stitch" - called Summer Jubilee. Some of her friends stitched this years ago and she always liked it. She ordered a big piece of Lakeside Linen - I think Charcoal - in 40 count (her favorite). Carol and I decided to follow suit, so the three of us have begun stitching Summer Jubilee (also published in BBD's booklet "Souvenirs of Summer". This fabric definitely calls for improved methods of lighting and magnification, but it will be well worth the effort.
Shown below is Rose's progress on this piece as of last Thursday night. Carol and I have, of course, about 1/20 of this much finished! What do you think of Rose's work? Would any of you long distance friends like to join us on this SAL project? It's a great piece for a winding down summer.
