the girl sitting and stitching the girl sitting and stitching

That's me. I promised this was a cute pattern and I'd say I delivered on that promise, yes? I had a few moments of doubt as I worked - the hands and that ruffle on her dress both caused me some stress. Overall, though, I am happy with it. The pattern on the chair is not what was on the original image but I was pretty sure I was going to screw it up if I used what was originally on there.
Check out the wee little puppy - is he/she a scene stealer or what? So cute! Thanks, Gina for sharing this pattern!
Hope you all have a floss (or yarn or paper or fabric)-filled weekend!

So cute! I love what you did with the chair. The pattern on the original kinda scared me...I didn't even think to change it! I might have to try this pattern after all.

Thank everyone - now I am really glad I changed the pattern on the chair although I just noticed I missed a french knot - oops!!
I tried to use as few colors as possible when I started this so I picked out two browns and three purply blues and stuck with those. Sometimes if I don't limit myself with colors I start to make really BAD choices, it's not pretty. :)

Very cute :). Is this one you're keeping for yourself?

If I could modify the hair to be similar to my hairstyle, that'd be fun to stitch up and hang in my crafting area.

OK, so everything on your site is making me really want to start doing some embroidery.

And instead of altering the hairstyle in the picture, I think I might just start wearing my hair like hers. ;)
