Happy Dance! - E is for Embroidery!

Design: E is for Embroidery
Designer: Prairie Schooler
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 28 count evenweave, cream
Stitches: Half cross stitch, backstitch
 
Oops, I'm a little bit behind on posting my finishes. I enjoyed this, even though I was a bit worried about the seemingly complex design on the "frame". There are a couple of small charting errors on that section, but it all came together well in the end.

I got rid of the Embroiderer's cat - they aren't my cup of tea - and I added the date instead of a sprig of flowers.

This is how the five letters I've stitched so far:

 

I'm so looking forward to finishing the first nine and getting it framed.
