Afternoon here in Florida and I was in the mood to start a new design.  I picked one of Nora Corbett's witches....Ana....and I'm loving her.  I'm only having one problem though.  It's been so long since I stitched a design that calls for quarter stitches that it's messing me up bad.  I feel like an idiot while doing them and I don't think I screwed up that badly.  Here is what she looks like so far...
.  It's 28ct. Gingerbread and I'm in love with it.

Then here is the black sheep to match the white one:

I'm  not ready yet to make these into pillows because I have to find a fabric that will look good with both striped fabrics.  I'm really thinking about a plaid but not sure.  When I see it, I'll know it. I'm open to suggestions!
Have a Blessed week, Barbara

The fabric for Ana is PERFECT. The stitching pops. Can't wait to see it finished!

That is gorgeous linen Barbara.
I am not sure about plaid for the sheep. You will know when you find it! ;)

The witch looks so great on the ginger fabric. You'll adjust to the 1/4 stitches again I'm sure.

Just love the sheep on those stripes. Such a different look.

What a gorgeous color linen you are stitching Ana on! And the black sheep looks fabulous on your striped fabric.

You chose the perfect color of linen for your latest piece, Barbara! I can see why it might be a bit confusing to stitch on, though. Good luck :)

Your Ana looks great on that gorgeous gingerbread fabric! For your sheep I would go for a pretty small floral pattern, as I like flowers and stripes together. I'm sure you will find something perfect.
