Hello again! I am trying to be better about blogging more regularly. Here is my on time YOTA post. You can find out more and see what everyone else has been up to here: http://pulltheotherthread.blogspot.com/p/yota-year-of-acronyms.html?m=1
After my last YOTA finish Chi Omega pillow. I started to get excited because I realized that my original long list of WIPs is getting really short! In fact I am down to three (not counting my current design I haven't shared yet and Christ at Hearts Door which is still too frustrating to even think about stitching)!! They are Girl with a Pearl Earring, Mom and Baby Turtle, and this YOTA piece Medieval Lady.
I started this design I am guessing sometime in 2004 or 2005. I found it in Cross Stitch Gold Magazine Issue 27 and it is designed by Karen Brittan. This was my very first project I did that didn't come in kit form. Its so old that it the stitches are going in both directions instead of all going in the same direction. It's also quite a bit dirty as it sat in Qsnaps at my mom's house for at least a few years and got covered in lots of dust.
Anyways here is the overall before photo...
