Harvest Time

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my last post.  You make me want to stitch faster!  LOL

I have another finish to show...

"Harvest Time"
Chessie and Me
Floss and Fabric as kitted
Old Mill Stitchery Seasons of Chessie Club

A big thank you to Chris for gifting me with this lovely kit.  There were lots of specialty stitches in this one so it took me a bit longer than the last one. 

I almost made a tragic mistake in the finishing...I originally mounted the piece sideways with the words across the top.  I didn't realize my mistake until I took it outside for the photo.  Thank goodness I used Alene's tacky glue instead of the Gutterman's industrial strength glue I had thought about using.  I was able to carefully remove the piece from the hornbook and  attach it in the proper orientation.  Crisis averted!

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Super cute! I love the little stitched cat on the barn roof. That is brilliant.

A very cute little finish! I'm so glad you did not have a disaster! Some designs are like that. When I stitched the bat, I had to remember to hold the bat upside down!

I'm so happy you managed to save the finishing!

Oh, it turned out perfectly, Myra... I think Chessie & Me designs are moving up to the top of my favorites list lately--really love them! And how lucky that you caught the mistake in placement. I've never heard of Gutterman's glue before--will have to check it out.

It's beautiful Myra! I have this very kit since I joined the club but it's not something I'm ever going to stitch. I'll either try to sell/trade it or gift it. So glad you used the tacky glue : )
