I've started on an Angelina Ballerina pattern from Storybook Favorites in Cross-Stitch.I started last night,and as you can see, it is stitching up quickly. I am stitching on a pretty, pale 28 count lavender linen. I am using one strand of DMC floss and stitching over two. For those of you who know me, you may think it strange that I should be stitching such a girly pattern. Rest assured, I am not stitching this for Elijah; I am stitching it for my 2 1/2 year-old niece. When finished it will become part of a little bag and given as a Christmas present. I hope she'll like it.
