Harvest Time Village

I'm pleased to say that the loss of my itch to stitch didn't last very long, and I completed my Harvest Time Village after a long days stitching on it yesterday. Looking back at my WIP photos it would appear that I started this at the end of February or the beginning of March, I really must make a note of starting dates. I've really only stitched on it for one week every month so it has taken me approximately five weeks actual stitching, not bad for a slow stitcher. I know that the border at the top looks a little wonky, I'm pretty sure it's just the camera angle, and if not then I'm sure my framer will sort it out when he frames it. As usual you can click on the picture for a better view.

Prairie Schooler Book 93 Harvest Time

36ct Antique White Edinburgh Linen

DMC Threads as given

Now I'm in a quandary as to which PS design to stitch next, "April" or "December". Any comments on that would be appreciated.

Many thanks for visiting my blog and for all the lovely comments.
