I'm stitching a little Prairie Schooler Four Seasons design that was on the cover of the Gift of Stitching Magazine. It caught my eye when I saw the finished version in the art gallery on San Man. I think I'm going to make it into a luggage tag, the kind that you use to distinguish your luggage from everyone else's. I hope to have a little pocket in it to put a card. It's a fun stitch with pretty colors, no fractionals, limited backstitching and very nice use of a small number of stitches to make an effective design. But not the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I've never appreciated these designs before, but lately I see lots of buzz about them on all the message boards. And I see outrageous prices for the OOP Prairie Schooler charts on e-bay. I don't really get that.
Maybe a reader will enlighten me.
