Graceful Lady

Last July Clarice posted a picture on her blog showing this beautiful, vintage pillow case. It's embroidered and colored with textile paints. But portions of this graceful lady were not completed --- the most important parts --- the face, hair, arms, and hands. I offered to complete the project for her, and yesterday took the last stitch. Clarice, your pillow slip will be back on it's way to you soon! I hope you like the results. I couldn't resist stitching the outline around the basket and her hair as well. I made her a red-head! I hope you like it! I enjoyed this project --- it was very relaxing stitching on this old linen piece.

*And a note to blog reader, Toshiko, in Japan --- I think of you every time I use the embroidery clippers! Thank you for them!
