My First "Flipin'" Challenge Finish

Little House Needleworks "Home Of A Needleworker Too."
 Stitched on 28 ct Antique White Monaco using the charted floss.

I love how it turned out, and wonder why I ever turned it into a UFO in the first place. Now, I just need to decide whether to frame it or make it into a pillow....hmmmm.

Hugs

I love it... I would frame it and put it as the first thing anyone sees when they enter your home.
Now tell me,,, are you going to stitch it again with a little brown house with a red roof for "Up Yonder" ? coz that'd be what this sista'd do...... LYLAS and SW
as always

Paisley said...

Vonna said...

It's one purdy finish Ma :)
I love it! (I'd frame it) :)

Congrats on a fabulous finish! I stitched this one last year and I did consider a pillow finish. However my finishing skills leave a lot to be desire so I ended up framing it instead. It hangs in my front entry and lets everyone who enters know how I spend my spare time.

Robin said...

Nice finish. When you have an answer as to why we toss aside projects to the UFO pile, please share. What a nice treasure to find and finish.

Jennifer said...

Beautiful, just beautiful. I have this pattern somewhere in my stash and kitted it up but haven't stitched it yet.

Jennifer said...

Oh I forgot.......I would frame it in a nice Walnut frame. That would be so pretty.

Peggy Lee said...

OUCH....it hurts when I see someone has stitched something so beautifully that I have in my stash! It's just waiting for me rescue it from the dark basket in the corner. I really need to dig this one out and give it life.
Your finish is absolutely stunning, as always!

Jules said...

Beautiful finish - I know, you can't hear that enough, LOL! I say frame it. Then, stitch it up again and make a pillow!

Hillery said...

Couldn't be more appropriate. We should all have this design decorating our homes. Congrats o the finish.

Elisa said...

A gorgeous finish...I am stitching number one...hope to do number 2 next xx

Rhona said...

Great finish, would look good either in a frame or as a pillow. You might just have to stitch it again so you can do both!

Sally said...

Love this design and yours turned out beautiful.
