As for stitching, I finished my first linen piece! Thank you all so much for your suggestions on doing the single pink stitches around the outside. It is really nice to have experienced stitchers give their in-put. And I decided to leave the "e" alone. If it still bothers me when I get around to finishing it, I will do something about it. But for now I'm not letting it bother me. I don't really know what to do with it just yet either. It's too big for a pinkeep I think. But I would like to think of some cute way to display it. It's so pretty! It makes me long for spring!

I really enjoyed working on linen. And as far as I can tell there's only the one little mistake in the "e" and nothing else in the entire piece. I kept checking as I went along to make sure all my stitches lined up. I was so pleased when I got all the way around the border and it all came together right!
