Gloire du Matin is Finished

Gloire du Matin is now finished. What a quick, fun stitch! I know this photo is not good... the fabric needs a good press, but I am too tired. Will get a better photo of it later..

Gloire du Matin

The Drawn Thread

34 ct Cafe Au Lait Legacy Linen, Thread Gatherer Silk 'n Colors, Caron Waterlilies and Soie d'Alger

Stitched 11/15/08 - 12/6/08


I recently signed up for a Dragon Lottery over in Laura's blog... and somehow my 40+ year losing streak came to an end. I never, never, never (no exaggeration) win anything at all. If I sign up for a contest or lottery, my name falls right through a sieve, as if it were never there. But, this time, I actually did win. Wow, go figure! My first lottery prize arrived yesterday, but I could not get a good photo until this morning in good light. Thank you so much, Rebekah. I love it - he is so cute!

Stitched on today: Finished Gloire du Matin, and started second part of Summer Exchange for Cathy K. *Mailed a gift today
