Happy New Year to you all. It's a fresh new start to the year, and I know it is going to be absolutely amazing this year. I have chosen to start this year off by picking out a piece from Kit Mountain to begin the New Year. This is another one that DH has picked out. He even chose the fabric for this piece, after I was waffling on a few. I think this one is really going to pop on this fabric and I cannot wait to get started. 

Design: Lady Of The Flag (retired) MD-62

Designer: Nora Corbett for Mirabilia 

Fabric: 28 count Cashel linen from Picture This Plus  in Phantom

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 as called for in the chart. Kreinik metallic threads in #4 Very Fine Braid in #025 Grey and #002HL Gold

Beads Used: Mill Hill beads in #02001 seed beads Pearl, #02019 Crystal Honey, #02022 Silver, #03015 Snow White Antique Glass seed beads, and #03050 Champagne Ice Antique Glass seed beads. 

Stitcher's Notes: Began Friday, January 1, 2016. Chart is now out of print and very hard to find. Please note that this chart is not for sale or trade. Stitched in commemoration of the Tuesday, September 11, 2001 attacks. 

Lady Liberty Lore: Frederic Bartholdi has trumped any Mother’s Day gift you could ever come up with: He used his mother, Charlotte, as the model for the most recognized statue in the world. This was first discovered in 1876, when Bartholdi invited French Senator Jules Bozerian to his box at the opera. When Bozerian pulled back the curtain to step into the box, he was shocked to find a real-life version of the Statue of Liberty sitting there in the box. When he said so to Bartholdi, the sculptor smiled: “But do you know who this lady is? She’s my mother,” he told the senator.

Well, I had best be off. The Lady will not stitch herself. I hope everyone has a great New Year's Day and the best year ever!
