New project for the new year

I started this, early this morning and did as much as I could till this afternoon
The lighting tonight is terrible, the linen color is true to the model on the cover


Summer Quakers by Rosewood Manor
28ct Truffle linen w/Valdani 3 strand floss
I'm going to try to start another tomorrow, we'll see what it brings
Lots of snow on the ground here, maybe 7"-8" from yesterday to tonight, another inch expected over night, great stitching weather with the frigid temps too.
Happy snow days!!!

I'm a big Rosewood Manor Fan. Her stuff is just absolutely gorgeous☺ I have several of her charts. Halloween Sampler and American Flag Sampler are two favorites. I long to stitch one with the valdini threads. Yum! I'm sure I will soon.
