Snowy Morn finished!

Finally got Snowy Morn finished this afternoon which I'm very happy about. The outer border was holding me up as I needed some proper daylight to complete it. The thread colour was disappearing into the fabric otherwise. I'm quite pleased with how it's all turned out. My favourite area is still the inner border with the feathering effect of the threads.

Great finish Jane, how will you finish it? Quaker Garden is lovely to stitch, not too much repetitiveness, if that is an actual word, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I loved stitching Quaker Garden that is. I really need to slow down and proofread! :)

Jane, Congratulations on your lovely finish!
It's very cute, isn't it!
I love the white border with specialty stitch, very much.
It's very beautiful!
I'm looking forward to seeing your Quaker Garden soon!
Once you started it, it will make me motivate (sorry for my poor English... )!
