I finished it yesterday completely...
I will have to straighten out the 
side border alignment. 
 I was tired and just said "Later".

 Here is a closeup of the 
subtle 'tortoise' finish. 
Not too busy as this was my concern
so I kept the 
final coat on the dark side.

Most importantly ... I FINISHED.

Thank you for following me... 
 ENJOY the rest of the day as I will.
Going to Aquatic Fitness as soon as I sign off.

Peace to all,

I DID IT . . .

'Heloise Williams Sampler'
 * * *
It is finished ....
took me just 7 months and 11 days.
Told ya I was slow.

I even signed it.
Bottom right corner.

NOW ... I must paint the frame I ordered and I am leaning towards a tortoise finish. 

Maybe ... just maybe, I can show it tomorrow.
Right now I am enjoying a big happy sigh  that may last thru tomorrow.

           See ya soon,  
                       Enjoy the day cause I am.
                                 Thanks for visiting.

Peace and Blessings to ALL,

Early Fall Inspiration . . .

I recently visited 'Stone Gable Blog' and was inspired to attempt to create my version of Yvonne's "Early Fall" wreath displayed on her front door.  
 Here is my meager version.

I did not use the burlap bow as I have burlap ribbon ... just can't put my hands on it ever since our move last November.  Sooo, I opted to leave it out for now and bunched up on all the sunflowers instead ... until I find the burlap ribbon or just buy some more ... which I hate to do ... yes I can be a tight wad.
Hubs commented with a yes nod. 
Also, I preferred to use the pears instead of green apples.  My last name initial (S) was retrieved from another project NO longer in use and repainted Black Green. 

 I want to say thanks to Yvonne for another shared, beautiful inspiration.

Enjoy the rest of the day with 
Peace and Blessings to all...
