Have you been following along with Clover & Violet's summer series? Well now is the time to show off what you have been hand working on this summer - and they have some terrific prizes! Stop over and take a look at all the wonderful summer projects that were made.
I had several incentives to finish this cross stitch piece - A Season by Hand, Christmas QAL/Challenge, and the HoHoHo Blog Hop. I love this winter scene of the Stone House Farm - reminds me of the verse - "Over the River and Thru the Woods, to Grandmother's House we Go' - and looks much like one of our family's old farmsteads.
I fabric framed it with the 'flip and sew' method (My fabric framing tutorial for cross stitch can be found HERE at SewWeQuilt ). I used a little hand quilting within the piece to hold it, and hand binding just like a quilt. The cross stitch is 5.5" x 17" and with the fabric framing it came to a finished size of 10" x 21".
