Your decision

Here are both hornbooks.  I must say that the second one, on the brown linen, is much nicer.  The mounting went better than the first, the floss was new and not fuzzy, it just looks better.  But the decision is yours.  I used 935/3052 for the leaves instead of the charted 500/501.  There are errors in both and it ticks me off.  After this morning's post, I had to remove the bottom half of one side and stitch it all over again because the edge was off two and it was obvious once mounted.  There is still one other error.   Be back late this evening with the winner.

They both look great to me, Marly! I love how the fox looks like he wants to climb right up the vine and grab the crow on the roof. Sorry you had to re-stitch the one part--especially after already having it mounted...

Those are just beautiful, Marley! I like both of them but I think I like the lighter linen just a wee bit better!

I am so glad I do not have your need for perfection in my work. If so I would never finish anything..Your work is beautiful and I think you are too hard on yourself. Enjoy your day.

Both hornbooks are lovely, but I like the way the red fox pops on the light linen. Melinda

They both look great! And it's so interesting to see them side by side - how different they look.
