Historical Couple #7

WHO-HOOO!!!! Couple number 7 is finished!!! I only have 5 more couples to go. Since this was the fashion sense of Marie Antoniette the dress of the woman was HUGE and lots of backstitching!!!

After this, I have a quilt block to finish for my friend Betty and then I am going to work on my three foot scarecrow.

On Wednesday, I am leaving for my annual cross stitch retreat which will be in St. Louis, MO. Every year we have it at a different location. It has been in Nebraska, Indiana, Arkansas and Tennessee. I am leaving bright and early at 7:00 am so I can be in St. Louis by 1:00 to pick up my friend Karin at the airport.

Beautiful stitching Vickie, as usual. You do such gorgeous work it's a pleasure to look at your work.
Have a nice trip and have fun at your retreat. I go to one in Belton, Texas every spring and it is so much fun.
Could you please tell me where you got the pattern for the different couples? Is it a kit? Can you still get it? Just go to http:// and leave me a comment after you get home if you don't mind. I have liked that pattern since I first saw it.
God Bless and safe trip ~
