Design coming from the magazine called "Victoria", September 1993

Comments: This is the very first crewel embroidery project that I stitched and I discovered that I truly enjoyed stitching on fabric instead of on canvas. I have only stitched a couple of crewel projects, Edwina Gorey, being the other one, so I am thinking that it is high time for me to stitch some more. I just happen to have one waiting for me.

One of my goal these days is to work on my UFOs as I have got way too many of them sitting here and there. I am presently working on one of them called Persian Fantasy and my intention is to stitch exclusively on it until it is completed, then pick another UFO and do the same. Some of them have very little left to do before I can take them off the stretcher bars, so perhaps 2010 will be known as the year of the UFOs in my household.
