More on Colleen

Colleen is moving along well with the addition of an apron and a shawl.

The apron was worked in white DMC #5 perle cotton and trimmed with the same Fleur de Paris fine mesh velour that I used on her cap.  The inside is a composite of slanted gobelin stitches over three threads alternating with stem stitches.  The outside is slanted gobelin stitches over three threads as well.

Two strands of Burmilana #3652--a heathery-looking thread--were used in a diagonal oblong cross stitch for the shawl.  Two cashmere stitches and one Scotch stitch formed the knot and tails.

I'm hoping to finish this canvas by the end of the week!
