For Marguerite!


Recently, my friend since college (and that's a really, really long time ago) Marguerite and I were chatting and the subject of my Pope John Paul II stitched piece came up. It hangs at work (I work for a Catholic Church) and she has never seen it. She asked me to post a picture, so here it is.
It was stitched right around the time of his death from a chart in a Polish magazine. Stitched on 28 count antique white Jubilee with DMC floss.

Wow, that's a beautiful piece. I'd have gone bonkers half way through it.
