Falling Leaves Hornbook

Well, I must say 
I am very pleased with
the way this hornbook 
sampler turned out.
So much so that I
couldn't part with it.
Is that terrible? 
It will stay in our home
and be displayed with
our other Fall decorations.
Hope to release a pattern 
for it.  That helps justify 
keeping it. :)

Enjoy your weekend and
as always, thank you so
much for stopping by to
visit. 
Happy Stitching.

No, it is not terrible! Just put every last detail into the pattern for us; I love you linen and fiber choices!

I feel like I want a great fall project to enjoy (and then display), but can't settle into one. MAYBE this could be it.

Then again, getting ahead on my Christmas Ornament project is also a great feeling!

Hi Nan,
It is just beautiful and I think we should always try to keep those special creations that seem to "speak" to us! I know I have done that and am never sorry!! So glad you decided YOU NEEDED IT!!
The colors are so wonderful and I LOVE the patina color on the wood...AWESOME!!
Blessings to you~~

Your hornbook turned out beautifully :) That's the perk of being the shopowner...you can keep some of the treasures for your self...enjoy it!
