Hornbook Pre-stitching Progress - UPDATE

Today I thought I’d show you my progress on the May Foothills EGA project. It has pre-stitching and here is what I have done so far. The fabric I am using is a pale peach which did not show up so well in the photo. Hopefully I can get a better one when it is finished. It is approximately 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches and is stitched over two on 32 count fabric (in order for it to fit the hornbook) using two strands of floss. My threads are DMC colors 3328 (main color); 3053 (green "thread"); and 712 will be the "fabric" she is stitching on when I get it in there. I still have to put in her "needle" and plan to use some silvery gold #4 Kreinik braid.

*****UPDATE: Sorry designer is unknown*****
It has been fun so far. I outlined here skirt so that all I have to do there (and in area that is the fabric she is stitching on) is fill in the space. This way I do not need to look at the chart and can work on it wherever or whenever I want.

We need to have the stitching completed by May 7. The program is putting it on a hornbook, which are being made by one of our chapter members talented husbands. Here is the finished sample.
Happy Monday All!!
