Autumn Stitcher's Challenge piece ~

~ finished!!

I wanted to keep it very simple & old looking ~

i left it sparse and muted,
then stained it just a *bit* more...

I added the little wool heart as a place to park your needles & pins
and it rolls up to tie with hand dyed silk ribbon ~

backed with the same wool as the little heart ~

I had fun designing & stitching this for the
Samplermakers Autumn Stitcher's Challenge ~

this finished piece will be avialable on
Early Work Mercantile on September 1st,
with a few other finished stitched pieces!!

we're off to the school today (again) for Hannah's senior photo's ~
I can't believe my little girl is growing up so fast~

have a wonderful day!!

Blessings from the Farm...

Oh Lori, It came out so nice. Love the primitiveness of it. I wouldn't be able to part with it. Some EWM buyer will be very lucky to have it in their home.

I would love to have it!Take care, Janice PS. I have a giveaway on my blog primsbythewater.blogspot.com

Beautiful Lori! I just took note of your header picture too. Forgive my ignorance, but is this one of your designs? What is it called? I agree with the previous poster, I would love a copy.

Fantastic job with the Autumn Challenge! And you're finished already! I need to get moving on mine, I've been having ADD problems and jumping around to different things.

Oh Lori...it's lovely! You did a wonderful job and I really like the way you finished it :) I'm still plugging away at my challenge piece but I think the end might finally be in sight!
