These took an amazingly long time!
I went through two 5 yard skeins of silk floss using them single strand for the darker leaves and double strand for the lighter ones.
I outlined the tree trunk and honestly don't think I need to add anything more to it.
Now I get to embroider the flower border along the front of the porch. I've been looking forward to this part for weeks and weeks..... You know me and flowers.......
Then I'll do the flag....but I think I will skip that satellite dish. ;-)
Happy 2009 everyone! Thanks so much for your interest in the blog and your comments over the last year...here's to many millions more stitches amongst us all in the new year.....
