Janet Haigh Pratt 1883

You know I had to start something new after finishing off my weekend patriotic stitch, right? 🙂

Janet Haigh Pratt 1883 was sitting on the top of the stack having recently arrived so I wound the floss and got it on floss tags and pulled some fabric and I was off.

Such a sweet little stitch – stitched area will be about 6.5″.  I started across the top line but one strand is enough to do the two letters that are the same color but there’s thread left over so I hop down to a border that uses the same color on my needle or the next letters in the row below that use that color until I finish off the strand.  That’s why I’m working down as I work across.  I think this will be a quick one to stitch but tomorrow is the start of Summer Cross Stitch Camp so tomorrow night I plan to start on my little ornament.
