The verse is an interesting mix of cross stitch over two and elongated cross stitch (two threads high/one thread wide). I had to focus a little harder on the counting than I normally do. That's usually the easiest part for me. I will confess to a couple of 'anomalies' of my own, but I'm pretty sure Jean wouldn't mind. I thought I had transposed a couple of letters at one point, but I realized Jean was apparently not a good speller either. Then again, "ravished" is a pretty big work for a ten year old.

First Finish of 2014
Well, my New Year's Day start is my first finish of the year. Jean Scrimgeowr, from The Scarlet Letter, has been a lot of fun and a relatively easy piece to stitch. I have totally enjoyed the many anomalies I've encountered and can't wait to frame her.
