Thank you all for your kind comments on my Liberty Inn finish. I thought you might like to see the beginnings of my patriotic wall.
I know it's rather pitiful right now but I do have a couple of projects lined up (if I can avoid stitching distractions) and hope to have at least 2 more pieces to add to it this year. That white lump you see in the bottom is our thermostat. No way to hide that thing and you can't cover it up so there it is.
I could hardly wait to get started on the LHN design Lynda sent me in the spring exchange. So...stitch it I did and finished it into an ornament as well. I am not thrilled with the finishing - the wool I used seems too "washed out" for the design but it will make a nice addition to my tree this year.

36 ct cocoa linen/floss as charted
Which brings me to the title of this post. Last week Chris sent me a sweet note and in it she included a Prairie Schooler freebie that I just love. The colors and design just spoke to me and I had it kitted up and began stitching right away. I didn't see a name on it anywhere only a number but I am calling it "Queen Bee". :o)
I stitched it on 32 ct black linen over 2 first. I liked it so much I decided to stitch it again over 1. And then just like potato chips I couldn't stop with just one so I ended up stitching it 3 times. (for now LOL) The shiny thing you see in the picture is a nickel - for perspective. :o) I plan to finish the large one into an ornament and I have a different finish in mind for the tiny ones.
I haven't had a giveaway in a while so let's have a little contest. Comment on this post with your guess as to what these small "Queen Bees" will become. If more than one person guesses correctly, I will put the names of those who guessed correctly into a hat and choose a winner. The winner will receive one of the little "Queen Bees" of there very own. The contest will remain open for about a week.
Let the games begin!
