Lo, How a Rose-2009 Finish

Here is the first of my 2009 finishes to share with you. It was in a hardcover Better Homes and Garden Christmas Stitching book that I bought off of Amazon. Unfortunately I sold the book on ebay and don't remember the year or exact name. I want to say Christmas Celebrations??? Anyhow I used the called-for Weeks Dye Works overdyes and changed the thread on the word ROSE from London Fog to Sweetheart Rose. The stitch count in the book was wrong-it said 88 X 42. It was actually 164 X 171. I found the frame at the local Fred Meyer on sale! If it looks old and chipped, it is supposed to look like that. It hangs on the bathroom wall.

Nice Finish. The frame is perfect for the design. You have to be so happy with this piece.
