I posted a picture of this book and I made a small project from it, and framed it last night. I can't show it, until I send the gift off and they received it. I bought this piece of 18 count aida cloth with hopes it will fit my next project. I had to ask Heidi if it would be big enough. I am not good at figuring these measurements out yet when I want to change the count. Here he is, my Indian Warrior. I hope I like doing this, because I really want to do the Maiden. I want to do this one first so then I will do the other one. That's my crazy reasoning.
Now, this is also in the book. It is a part of a sampler for a baby. Now, since I have a Zoe Fawn (named after her Gramma Fawn), I think she needs just the Fawn with her name on it. It will go fast since it is small.

Doesn't sound like crazy reasoning to me but then I am made of your! It is going to be quite a project but I know how you like stitching people. I think Zoe will love having the Fawn.

Love and hugs ~

I see some happy stitching time ahead. The Warrior is very handsome and I bet the Madien is just beautiful. This book has wonderful projects....the Fawn for Zoe is precious.
I'm looking forward to seeing the gift you just finished...hugs, Linda

Hello Nancy,

Two nice projects again, you really got the x-stitch virus! They look very, very nice.
Happy stitching & hugs,

Oh my Nancy, what a great design you chose from your books! I have some Indian designs in my stash, too, and one day I'll stitch them. I really love yours and am looking forward to seeing you start on it.
