E is for Embroidery - Prairie Schooler

Design: Part of E is for Embroidery 
Designer: Prairie Schooler
Threads: DMC as charted
Fabric: 28 count evenweave, cream
Backing fabric: A's, Bees and Dandelion Seeds fabric from Red Rooster.

I stitched this for Jayne over on the Year Round Prairie Schooler Exchange blog whilst listening to the cricket back in September. I jokingly said it really should be called 'A is for Ashes' because England managed to win whilst I completed this!

I stitched it pretty much as charted, apart from not filling in behind the 'E' - I think it looks too heavy on little pieces.

The backing fabric is one of my favourites. I see that there are quilt patterns specially for this range - I may have to invest...
