FIS Swap sent..............

An online group had a swap and the theme was Leanne's House............I had to make for Lizzie and this is what I sent to Lizzie......I know she likes reproduction fabrics so i used that in the border............
......I have had this stitchery in a folder from a magazine for quite awhile...........think it was originally in Country Threads and finally have got to stitch it.........I pulled it over an art canvas and loved making
it..........thanks Lizzie for sending me a photo of what I sent because I forgot to take one before posting.....
This also makes it as a finish for OPAM for March..........will email Peg and Kris to let them know now........
A gorgeous rainy day here.........just over 1.5 inchs of rain so far.............
Catch you later

  11. So pretty. Don't you love when you finally use a pattern that you've wanted to for a long time. I've got lots like that. So many good intentions, so little time. That's funny I was just wondering aloud to my daughter yesterday if I could use artist canvas for such a thing. Hmmm, now I really need to try it.
