Back from the framers.

 It didn't take long for the framers to do their magic.  
I selected a whitish frame matted with the evergreen to show case this piece.  

Started in November 2014 - Finished in May 2015
Stitched on 32 ct natural light linen with 2/2 threads
Threads Used: 
DMC: 310, 452 (for the smoke out of the chimney), 921, and 3731
Crescent Colors:  Really Teally and  Ribbon Red
Weeks Dye Works: Deep Sea, Emerald, Lancaster Red, Molasses, Monkey Grass, Pecan and Whitewash

Since I'll be selling these gently used charts on ebay, I thought it best to note what colors were used someplace, so am using this format to record the threads and pertinent information.  It's all done with the called for threads and linen.  
The only deviation was the color of the smoke coming out of the chimney, 
that aqua was just too brisk, so a softer grey was called for IMHO. 

Stay tune for what I decide to start cross stitching next, there are several on my want to do list.
Decisions...  decisions...........

It looks so lovely. I only made it through one cross stitch and had it framed. It took me forever.

Cute sampler! Love the frame. "Should" get my xstitch framed! You'll have to tell me where you took it when I see you! Hugs!

Wow! this is a really beautiful piece! What patience it must have taken.
I am glad I could find your blog, because Blogger did not let me know you had commented and so I have no email address for you. I loved your heart swelling story about your little granddaughter's charity quilt. That is so amazing she did that!
