The End

Finally, a finish!!! I put in the last stitch of Summer Splendor last night, what a relief!! This little thing has been giving me troubles, I can't even remember how many times I've stitched and frogged it due to the unsatisfaction of my color choice. But at the end, it was all worth it. I really like how it turned out~ 

Pattern: Little House Needleworks "Summer Splendor"
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 32ct  Belfast Linen Lt. Mocha 
Stitch Size: 6.375” x 3.625"

Please excuse all the wrinkles. I haven't decided what to make of it yet. Maybe a pillow? A flatfold? Or a book cover? Hum.... Decisions decisions.....
