Finished and framed

On one of our visits to Las Vegas in 2009 (while we were still in The Netherlands) I fell in love with and bought this Thanksgiving pattern. What a fun project and what a quick stitch!

The pattern calls for a 19 ct fabric using wool etc. for stitching. The coarser fabric just isn't my cup of tea (or in my case coffee) so I used a piece of 28 ct evenweave my SIL had given me last year. The name of the color of the fabric is unknown (looks like mocha) and it was perfect for this fall piece. The colors are much richer IRL.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner it was high time to get it framed so we can display it. Mission accomplished this past Tuesday. Framing is always such a daunting task for me but I am pretty pleased with the result.

'Happy Thanksgiving' by Shepherd's Bush
stitched 2/2 on 28 ct evenweave with DMC floss

I can't believe it. I also stitched "thanksgiving" by Shephards bush. I so enjoyed stitching it and I also display it framed on an easel w/pilgrams & pumpkins around it. I also have read Many Allison Weir books that u posted and also D. Macomber. I live in Oregon and she is a local(of sorts) author. I enjoy Tudor era history very much.
