Quaker Street

Hello everyone!

I started this piece last year (New Year, New Start) and it was my weekend stitching project, sometimes I also stitched this during the week.
When I decided to add the last stitches in the last week of 2018, I noticed that I forget to stitch the letter “N”. I riped out all the stitches till the letter “M” and I re-started. And now is done!

Design by Marjorie Massey – Quaker Street.
Stitched on 40 count Early America hand dyed linen by Barbaral Creations with Carriage Black floss by The Gentle Art.

This piece have some wonderful motifs! Some of my favourites is the cat and the sun!

Thanks for visiting!
Have a great day! Happy stitching!
