I started this piece in May as part of the Needlequest challenge for that month. I used 28 count linen and used kreinik #4 leftover from other projects for the blackwork fillings.
I should know better than to stitch the date before I get close to the end. I started this EGA correspondence course in 1997. I put in all of the basting and finished the cross stitch, including the year. I have yet to start the drawn thread part and it is now 17 years later!
I'm linking up with Sharon B's Pintangle. Check out everyone else's WIPW projects.
