Thanks for all your comments on my Quaker - it's stitched on 40ct Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens using Dinky Dyes Midnight and Silk n Colors Wintered Grass. I'd forgotten how yummy Dinky Dyes silks are!
And here's Pompeii part 1 all finished! I even added the crystals. I don't usually do that until the end but those gaps were bugging me. I'm onto part 2 now - it's relatively quick, I may get two of the four corners done this weekend! (Stitched on 32ct Pipi from Countrystitch)
