Stars of the New Millennium – Marilyn

Several months ago, I fell for this counted canvas design by Tony Minieri.

It’s been done in a number of different color combinations and the book includes lots of suggested colorways and guidance on choosing your own based on a multi-color overdye.

A number of fellow stitchers and I decided to start the design this month.  Here’s my first block, Marilyn Monroe:

I love it.  Cannot wait to add borders and continue on!
