BREAKING NEWS: Abigail Cecile Gifts A Free Notre Dame Design UPDATED

Since the roof and spire of Notre Dame Cathederal burned this week, folks have been looking for canvases to commemorate the cathedral as it was.  Bucherie in Paris has several small pieces and one large canvas.

Sally Corey has one as well.

If you are a fan of counted canvaswork, Threedles has "Cathedral" in the Notre Dame color way.

Now Abigail Cecile has gifted us all a line drawing of the current profile of the cathedral.  Go to her website on your laptop or desktop (link below), put your cursor on the middle of the image, then holding the cursor down, drag the image off her website and to your desktop.  There's a link to her explanation on how to transfer this to needlepoint canvas here as well.

By the way, Tricia Nguyen of Thistle Threads was right there when Notre Dame started burning if you need a good photo of how it was when choosing colors for your version.
