I love how it's turned out. I stitched it on 32 count Lambswool with the recommended thread. It was really fun to stitch and a pretty quick one (for me). I think this took me about 2 months - I'll have to start noting my start dates. I kow many of you could probably have whipped this out in a week but I seem to be very slow!!! I find I am so tired at night with these long summer days of non-stop activity with my kids that I've been getting up at 5:45 am and stitching until 7 am when the kids usually get up. I LOVE this quiet, "me time" in the morning with my coffee and cross stitch. Lately that's about the only time I get to work on it all day.
So, after a lot of thought, I've decided to have it framed in a shabby chic white frame. I am tempted to try Vonna's framing tutorial on framing (found here) but I think I want to try it with something smaller and squarer first.
I almost have my Amish Sytle Patriotic Flag finish-finished. Will show you that next time. Next up is Sun Flower House by Little House Needleworks. And, maybe some work on my Little House Neighborhood which I started with such a bang last August but have seriously neglected since November! Happy Summer Stitching! Meredith
