State Fair finis

State Fair - American Quilt Collection - design by Laura J. Perin
24 count Congress Cloth
Recommended DMC #8 cotton

I knew these counted needlepoint pieces would be fast. :-) I finished State Fair on Friday evening and wasted no time on starting on my next piece. It's called Falling Leaves and it's also by LJP and I'm doing it on 24 count congress cloth with #8 DMC. You will see that all of the six pieces I'm doing are two borders around a central motif. And the best thing is they are so, so easy and fast! One down and five to go. :-)

I love the colors on this one. :-)

Beautiful! I remember you saying they were all to be for christmas gifts, but I don't recall how you are planning to finish them.

They both look wonderful Margie! I'll bet they're a lot of fun to stitch too!

Congratulations on your canvas piece finish Margie - they are fun to do - I have been itching to do some canvas work lately - must be the extreme heat we are having - records highs for the last few days of spring. I've abandoned my knitting and hooking for the cool feel of linen in my hands. Melody

I really like "State Fair," Margie! It looks great in the photo. The dimensionality of this one is popping!
