28ct Country Mocha linen
I wasn't sure if I would like it on the fabric I chose, but it seems to be working ok so far. Unfortunately I'm missing one of the colors, so there are a couple of gaps in the house and tree that I'll have to fill in later (the door, a band at the top of the house, and two tree decorations). When it's done it will look like this
During Thanksgiving I got to spend a good amount of time stitching with my DSIL Kim and so got to see some of the fun projects she's recently completed and even done the finishing on, like her Chocolate Covered Cherries and Pumpkin Scissor Fob. I love the pumpkin fob and plan on making one for myself. Her finishing always looks so nice to me. One of these days I really need to learn to do more finishing myself. Acorns and Strawberries are still sitting in my basket waiting for me to decide how to finish them off.
