I love Michael Powell’s whimsy. The pattern called for Anchor, but I don’t use Anchor. So … I sat down with his photos and some DMC and did the best I could. I mean, there was a DMC conversion on the pattern but they weren’t even close and I really liked the look of the Anchor colors. Spent more time selecting floss than I did stitching it!
I love to finish things as flat folds / easels whatever you like to call them. Some pretty fabric and cardboard with a little bit of glue and BAM! you have something really pretty to display.
