(Partial) Phoenix Quaker Update

My latest WIP is coming along quite rapidly. I am really loving this color combination. I was thinking the other day that maybe I will have to stitch this one as a whole piece, and not just a part of it in these colors. I will have to buy a minimum of 4 skeins of the Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru, methinks. I have already used up almost a whole skein on just the wee bit I am stitching! It's a very lovely silk floss and while I might not mind, I know my wallet will, LOL!

Well, at any rate, on with the show!

Design: Phoenix Quaker

Designer: Jackye Derhay Renahy of A Mon Ami Pierre (retired)

Fabric: Picture This Plus 32 count linen in Phoenix

Fibers: Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched 2 over 2 as the coverage was needed as I wanted this to be a monochrome piece. Only stitching a portion of the design.

Well, I best be off. I need to take care of somethings today, and finishing up the stitching on this guy is one of them. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
