Ackworth 2 finished

Finished this last weekend just didn't get around to posting. Have to say it is one of my favorites.
Finally got to the framer today and took all 9 of my finished Quakers to be framed. Was not looking forward to the cost but as things turned out it really wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Took Ann Grimshaw, Maria Spence, Ackworth 2, Frances Rae, Beatrix Potter, Eliza Trusted, Hannah Beeby, Hannah Hicks and Mary Busby. Final cost to have all framed was $956.00 that is an average cost of $106 each. Really don't think that is too bad considering some of these are rather large pieces. So I am just a Happy Camper!!! Should be able to pick them all up on May 17. So stay tuned folks for the pics of the Quaker Wall. It will be forthcoming!! :)

Almost finished

Just have one more medallion and a few letters to complete and Ute's Ackworth 2 will be finished. Plan is to finish it today. Then the big decision... What to work on next?? Shall I finish up some of the WIP's or start something new?? Will have to ponder that as I stitch these last stitches on A2. Will post a pic as soon as it is completed.
