1843 Catherine Eleanor Blain

Not the clearest of pictures this time. I finally lept into the 21st century and updated my phone to a Motorola Grasp complete with QWERTY keyboard and camera. I took these with the camera - the 1.3MP is obviously not as good as my usual camera, but I wanted to try it out and was too lazy to retake them.

I finished another name on Mother's Tree and started St. Basil's Cathedral. Katie really, really wanted me to start on "her castle" so I caved and started it for her.

I'm planning to change some of the backstitching on the cathedral to make it stand out better against the white opalescent fabric.

Oh wow, nice stitching girl. I have St. Basil's Cathedral - somewhere in my stash. It is a beauty. Look forward to seeing Katie stitch on it.

I love the sparkly fabric! :) That's a great start.

Nice progress on your Mother's Tree!

Great start on St. Basil's Cathedral, too!
