Counted Canvas Finish!

About a month ago, I started this counted canvas, a design from Nancy's Needle.  I got quite a bit finished before I put it down to work on models.  I was able to finish it up this week and love how it turned out.  The colors are very warm and comforting.  I had showed it to my mom as a WIP and she fell in love with it so I will most likely be getting it framed for her.  The closeup pics shows the true colors. It is rather hard to photograph needlework lately because it has been overcast and the lighting is poor.   The design is titled Woodland Star.  Now back to the stitching chair to see what I can finish!

 


 
 Thank you for visiting my blog.  I enjoy reading your lovely comments and getting your feedback!  Happy Stitching!
