It is beautifully colorful and so well complimented on your choice of linen.
That peel looks like it was made to order. Super job...Enjoy the day only if there is no white stuff.

Peace to all,

Dirty Martini Queen said...

Oh Marly again your stitching and finishing just inspires me. I just want to know how many hours you stitch a day and do you ever sleep or just stitch 24 hours a day? I'm such a slow stitcher.

Wow! That looks fabulous! And mounted on that wood (going to look up what a 'peel' is!), perfect! Congrats on finishing it, as I know you have been having mixed feelings about stitching. The next project is just waiting for your attention... there is always a next one! Hugs!
