Just in time for GW's birthday, I finished this Paul Revere piece. I was singing the whole time I was stitching..
I've got the horse right here, his name is Paul Revere, and here's a guy that says that if the weathers' clear, can do...can do...this guy says the horse can do. If he says the horse can do...can do...can do.
For those that don't recognize the lyric, it's from the most wonderful show, Guys and Dolls.
You can watch the opening number to the show to see it performed if you care to on this You Tube Video.
The design is from the July/August 2012 issue of JCS. I remember thinking it was interesting when I first saw it, but I recently saw a finish of this on Hildi's Good Life.
It made made me want to stitch it immediately.
Mine is stitched on 28 ct Cashel linen in Summer Khaki I think. I love the little petit point/over-one stitching for Paul. The grass is in long-leg cross stitch and gives a nice textured effect. Just a fun little design.
I finished it up as a pouch to hold my small quilting ruler for want of knowing what else to do with it. My cutting, sewing and centering are shown up for all their wonkiness here, but the ruler fits quite nicely inside.
