I finally decided to mount on an oval, made to order, wood plaque.
The finish is my old standby favorite
after experimenting many times...
A faux tortoise in grey tones.
It is subtle, but others were too much contrast.
So this is what I settled on.
It can be hung on the wall or
displayed as shown on a wooden easel.
I/We love "Wings of Freedom".
Hubs 'told' me, "this is NOT for sale".
What better compliment coming from Hubs,
after he spent many evenings getting a late diner
or even running out for some fast food.
Not to mention the clutter and disarray on our
farm table where we eat our meals.
I completely enjoyed the challenge on this project.
It was my first time using Rustic Moire Wool Thread
and looking forward to the next.
Thanks for your patience waiting to see the Finale.
I too look forward to seeing all of your works in progress
and then the finished piece.
For me, you all are inspirational.
Hope all is well and many thanks for your visit...
Peace and Blessings,
