Today's project has a personal connection for me. My aunt, Anita Poland, is the artist for the original design. It was adapted for cross stitch and published in the March 1998 issue of For the Love of Cross Stitch magazine. Upon learning I was a stitcher she sent me an afghan and asked me to stitch it for her. I started but it is done with 6 strands of floss which has proven to be a struggle. I don't enjoy stitching on the afghan cloth with it's irregular threads. You can see from the picture that I haven't made much progress. My goal is to have it finished this summer so I can deliver it to my aunt in person. We'll see...

I wish I had chosen to use Perle cottons. It would have made this so much easier! Hindsight and all that.
