I finally have another finish in this series. This is the Schoolhouse by La-D-Da stitched with the recommended floss on 32 ct (over 2) Wichelt lambswool linen. I toyed with stitching with CC Sassy Brass instead of the Flax but it didn't show up well against the Cinnamon.

I finished another Town Square SAL piece, Cricket Collection's Clock Tower. I am guessing the town [or towns] that inspired the designers who participated in this project must be one of those Midwestern towns where loads of immigrants from Europe settled to farm and run shops. If one is to judge by this clock, it had to be a place filled with Europeans accustomed to seeing the work of skilled artisans and craftsmen in their public buildings: lots of colorful mosaics and brilliant stained glass and fanciful brick/stone work.
