This cheery little chappy with his dove of peace came all the way from the West Coast of the USA, courtesy of Edgar on the Hooked on Exchanges blog.
Edgar and I both love Prairie Schooler, the designer of St Nicholas (who I guess is doubly appropriate as he is really my namesake) and Edgar chose a design from an old OOP book - Book 20 - for me. He is stitched on 32 count fabric and finished into a 'pyn keepe' (Edgar's preferred spelling!).
Thank you again, Edgar!
