I did this after reading, and re-reading Albama Chanin last book for a long time.

At first I didn't know what to chose, there are so many beautiful things to do in it. So I started by something easy, but which seemed stunning to my eyes.

The work was long but the fabric is so nice to touch, the progressing work was so lovely to look at, that I didn't mind.

And I must say I'm really really pleased with the result. It's simple but stylish, I love it ! My only fear is to lose it  Shocked

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That is beautiful stitching!
(and gives me some encouragement that one day I might do more than read and reread my alabama chanin book without starting anything)
