Mary Roe

I finished Mary Roe last evening.  The fabulous colors drew me to her and I was not disappointed.  She's still a little wrinkled but I just don't like to iron my pieces.  All the wrinkles will disappear when she gets pinned and framed.  Mary Roe is by The Scarlett House.  I stitched her on Lakeside Linen, 40 count Meadow Rue with the called for Belle Soie.





Of course a post wouldn't be complete without some snaps of my companions!

Here's Cee-Lo Red.  Just returned from his recuperation in the south of France. 
 Hungry and happy as ever !!



 Belle lounging on the stitch ottoman.


 Casanova helping me out with floss selections....it's in the bag. 


Mick Jagger in one of his favorite positions, downward hanging cat.


And Jaxon rolled up in his favorite position, circle cat.  
(He's really a black cat but the flash washed out his coat.)


I'm off to Neighborhood Stitch today.  The gals, the stitching, the visiting and lunch is right next door.  Could it get any better??  Thanks for stopping by.
