Back from the Framer and a Finish

My first finish of 2013: Our Love Nest by Country Cottage Needleworks

This one was such a fun and cute stitch! Although, I believe I managed to get wine on the back of the fabric. How? I have no idea, but I saw some purple spots, rushed to rinse them off, and then the green thread started to bleed a little. I had to restitch some of the clouds as they had a green tint in a few of the stitches. If you look closely at the top, you might see a little staining from the wine. I plan to mat this piece, and hopefully it will cover up the stains.

Last week I picked up Hillside Travelers by Little House Needleworks from the framer. It turned out great :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
