Next Project: Secret Flower Bed

I've got all kinds of projects going on downstairs in my Studio, but I need something to keep my hands busy while watching TV upstairs. So I pulled this Spring design out of my stash.

The pattern came with the linen and the buttons. I've decided to use Anchor floss rather than the recommended Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Weeks Dye Works (I have the GAST, but not the Weeks in my stash - and I really don't need another line of threads).

I've started making a grid on the fabric to help me with the stitch count. This definitely calls for good lighting and magnification. I'm still trying to figure out a comfortable way to set that up.
