I had a pleasant comment from an old stitching friend, Chris, and it reminded me of a piece I am designing that has been put on the back burner for a while. She remembered it because of the bullion stitches. I thought I'd post a picture of it so you can see what she remembered ... The hair is done in bullion stitches using a very small needle so there are a lot of "curls". I am toying around with a name -- since it is based on Pennsylvania German Fraktur, I thought I'd call it a "Fraktured Huswif" (just kidding). I haven't really settled on a name yet.
As you can see by the date (2006) it has been quite a while since I've worked on this design. It is going to be a huswif, with accompanying smalls and a beautiful tiger maple, minature blanket chest to hold it all in.
