Betsy as Promised

Here is "Betsy" alongside a pencil for scale.
This is a Catherine Strickler piece under the design name of Indigo Rose.

Because I was using 28ct linen I decided to use two ply instead of the traditional one ply.
It made some things better, but some things worse. There are some holes where the needle goes
in and out seven times and with two ply, that's two much thread in one hole.
Live and learn.
But I still like it.

Anchor floss, not DMC, in the colors called for in the pattern.
