    I finally finished Elizabeth! I began her several years ago and finished the cross stitch over a year ago but could not get up the nerve to finish finishing her. When I did right after Christmas this year I found that it was not nearly as difficult as I had built up in my mind. Now I am obsessed and almost finished the cross stitch part of another
    pin cushion doll.

    • That is beautiful! Was that a kit?

      • Thank you. It wasn’t a kit. The pattern was in Sampler & Antique Needlework magazine Summer 2014 issue and I bought the head from brierrose.com.

      • Irony. Vera, I started this project earlier in January. I’ve finished the embroidery for the doll; today, started the companion trunk. Assembly of both to follow. When the designs came out in 2012, Needle in a Haystack in Alameda,CA, kitted up the two pieces. Love the colors.

        • Are you going to make the tray and pincushion that go in the trunk? Guilia made the instructions for making them free on her website puntiantichi.com. I haven’t decided whether to make the trunk and I don’t remember what fabric I used for her skirt so that I could make them the same.

    • That finishing is not an easy task. It looks beautiful – Congrats on the finish!
