FINISHED

More or Less
I have finally finished my embroidery. Can't believe that I first put these bits and pieces together on my Day 12 Post on 22nd January. Time just flies by, so many family things happening that stop me playing at creating.
This is the finished embroidery. Now I need to frame it in something, not quite sure what yet. Probably stretch it over a board and then put a frame over it.
Love lives in this house.
I saw this quote on a little tin sign and thought it was sweet.

The door knob is a crystal bead with a little seed bead holding it in place

I love the look of the muslin in the window and door

The tree is also created from a circle of muslin, with a cream button and sequins in the centre and some french knots around the outside

The tree trunk is stemstitched and the pot I just played around with
