One Day Wonder August Challenge.

This month it was my turn to chose the theme for the ODW challenge.  The choice was to stitch something from any childhood story book or, nursery rhyme. I felt that gave an extremely wide choice for those participating. This is my August ODW piece.  It is the Queen of Hearts, from Lewis Carroll's,  "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." Of course folk, who know the story, will remember  her as a vile  tempered monarch, who dispensed the death penalty for the least innocuous offence. Thus she was referred to as, "The Black Hearted Queen." Enjoy, K.

Oh! I'm glad this post is sitting in my drafts. I've just looked at this photograph and realized this is from earlier in the month, when I completed the stitching.   I've been looking for just the right fabric to complete this into a small pillow.  Needless to say, I haven't found the fabric to suit. 
Here are  the updated photos, still not made into the aforementioned pillow.

 I do need to thank another very kind stitcher for fetching this wee button & mailing it to me, from afar. I also need to thank her for directing me to this free chart from the blog, sub rosa. Thank you ,


  1. Lovely finish. Hope your pillow idea works out

  2. How cute--that adorable button is just perfect :)

  3. Oh, you stitched her! She looks wonderful--isn't it a fun stitch? :O)

    1. I thought I had a piece large enough for a Moira Blackburn Sampler. Just a tad to small overall. The new larger piece is awaiting collection from my localLNS.

  4. Nice article great post comment information thanks for sharing.
