it is a loverly October day, warm & sunny
...but with an obvious Autumn chill in the air...
I've had the woodstove in the Keeping Room going today,
...seems like it is colder in this old farmhouse than it is outside ~ the welcome warmth from the stove makes it cozy and a perfect environment for stitching ~
|~ two angels decorating their feather tree ~|
|centering the cardboard between the finished stitching and backing fabric|
|taking my time ...enjoying the moment and the woodstove ~|
...I love how the angels' wings almost disappear.
|stitched onto 30ct Olde Farmhouse Linen from Notforgotten Farm|
...perfect for a Christmas design, don't you think??
|i love old velvet ~|
just a few last stitches, then I'll add a ribbon hanger, scissor pocket and thread-rings...
|hand stitching makes all the difference in the world for an authentic, old look ~|
