Greetings!  I know, I know, I'm long overdue with posting AGAIN, but my needle has kept me very busy.  I was determined to put the first stitches in Rachel on New year's Eve.  It took me three needles and forty nine days to stitch her.  I'm pleased to present Rachel Howells 1856. 

I need to point out that not all of the border flowers are exact.  You will need to pay attention.  I charted her exactly as Rachel stitched her. I used 40ct. Legacy from Picture This Plus and NPI.  Stitch count is 319 x 280.  Thread colors needed are: 292, 301, 313 (2), 316, 325, 502 (2), 622, 746, 761,851, 852, 993, & 991BB. 

Now I'm off to print charts if my printer holds up.  It started spitting and sputtering on the first batch.  Wish me luck.
On a personal note, I attended granddaughter Quinn's gymnastic meet this morning.  Her team took 1st place!  I'm very proud of her.
