This leaflet is going pretty quickly so far and is a nice break from Project 2. The first picture is Pink Climber and was one I had thought I wouldn't do but then thought it would be a nice lid cover for a canning jar. I used a piece of hand dyed linen which I will also be using for the Little Things pattern as well.
It was really quick and easy and I think it took about three hours to stitch.
One of these days I might actually time the patterns, but for now I'm going to sit here being very pleased with the end result. It is 2 1/2 inches tall and 2 inches wide.
I'm just grateful there weren't a bunch of French Knots in it like the Pewter Blue!
I didn't use the pink linen napkins for this tiny piece because I have just enough to do the larger patterns in this leaflet.
Pewter Blue came out as 5 1/2 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches tall which means that three of the other patterns will be about the same size. Good to know when planning on frames and such later on.
