Waltzing along

I finally dug this out of my project bag from Celebrations...."Valse de Fleurs" by Cynthia Zittel (The Drawn Thread). I really am loving the specialty stitches, although I will confess to pulling some of them out a few times before I was satisfied! And I'm still not thrilled with my French stitches. Maybe it is due in part to their tiny size....Also, I had to chart my own "W" for the initials, since the included alphabet chart had letters that were 5 stitches wide while the actual space on the the piece is only 4 stitches wide. The "E" was easy enough to adjust, but the "W" was a bit of a challenge!
