~A LA D DA Finish~

Boy, I really love how this finished up.  I am really happy with the colors.  DMC 3750 and 3012.
Stuffed nice and tight with sawdust. It's looking really nice in my antique Albany slip bowl.
It may just have to stay there :) 
Backed in a dark blue reproduction cotton fabric
and stained with a walnut crystal solution for that "been around 
awhile" look.

I am enjoying the hot (but in the shade) weather, out on the back deck.
Bill is grilling and it's almost time to chow down.
I've been stitching for Fall, so check back.
Have a great afternoon. 

The Pattern is called Letters and Leaves and I found a link to the free 
pattern here
