Current state of Grand Old Duke ( When i abbreviated it in Flickr as GOD, I thought coincidence? ) Mylene, he looks bigger in the model (i think it was 14 count) but I am doing him on 22 ct fabric...so he won't be much bigger than 5 x7. And yes he will be all filler once the black outlining/detailing is done...I am just trying not to burn out on it . so I alternate stitching on him and the baby sampler:
It is not going as fast as I hoped, but i swear it will be done by Annabeth's 3rd birthday. The original pattern is found at Kissy-Cross, but it is no longer available unless you contact the designer. of course now that i stitched it I am thinking I should of made the border purple instead of blue (cause the original sampler was for a boy) but I think if I do all the lettering in purple it should balance it out.
