The finish ~

Here is the cover model for
"A Harvest of Primitives" book...
((i showed you the sneak peek yesterday))

I decided to cover the back with a nice red/mustard/brown PA German-type fabric,
then added a braided border made from homespuns in browns, butter and cream.

I like the way it plays down the colors of the actual punched piece...
{what do you think???}
Peter is feeling better today,
..although I 've never seen him sleep so much in our entire marriage.

....to my Dear Sister
I'll see you soon and we can celebrate then, Lou!!!
I love you!!!!

We finally have some sunshine today,....
hoping to mow the grass this aft.
wishing you all a *SPARKLING* day!!!
Blessings from the Farm,
