I haven't been on for a while or crafting much lately but I thought I would share this fun project.  The chair was raffled to raise money for the local library.  The book I used was "Exploring Elizabethan Embroidery" by Dorothy Clarke and designs by Stephanie Powell.  It was a lot of fun to make and the needle weaving was very easy and fast.  I'm planning to make another chair next year using another book in the Elizabethan Embroidery series.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
