I made it into a cute little pillow to hang from a doorknob or on the wall. I love it!!
Linen is definitely still a challenge for me, though I was getting better towards the end. There 1 or 2 mistakes I left in there, and I did have to frog a few times....but I survived!
Daffy at It's Daffycat opened my eyes to Monaco....I went out and bought some this weekend. I also got some Hardanger. They're both teeny tiny, but not as straining as linen.

I'm so anxious to get started on my Angel of Hope stitch, but I promised myself I wouldn't start anything else until the maiden was complete.
My new follower tally is at ..... SEVEN!! I feel like I win a little mini-lottery everytime I have someone new join! :)
