Marquoir Annie

I had hoped to have a completed project to show by this time, but only the stitching is complete on this. Dany designed this lovely sampler for someone named 'Annie' (see the Aug. 25, 2010 entry). She stitched in the name and the birth date. The date was not all that much before my birth date. So I considered it my destiny to stitch this piece. I used 32 count "Mottled Magpie" linen from Vikki Clayton. It's not quite as bright a blue as in this photo. And I didn't stitch in my own birth date! I'm still trying to figure out how I want to construct a zippered bag from this. You can see the two complementary fabrics I bought last weekend that will be used in some way. Hopefully I'll get inspired to do the finishing soon.

I think your piece is very pretty. I like the fabric on the left more, for what it's worth. :)

Gorgeous!

Gorgeous piece Annie, I would use both fabrics, they match the colors of the stitching perfectly!

Do you already know what to do with it? What about a small bag to carry your projects around?

A beautiful finish, Annie. For me, i go with the darker fabric for the backing--but that's me. Goodluck!
