My sister's entire house is decorated in a country/primitive theme.  I wanted to stitch her up something nice to go with her Christmas decorations and this is what I came up with.  I found the image on google and thought it was perfect.  I added the fabric border to give it a little more of that country feeling since it was lacking on just the white fabric. Now I just have to frame it up, I am thinking a 5x7 frame will work nicely.  I used a satin stitch, back stitch and french knots to complete this design.  I apologize now for the blurry and crooked pictures, I am not so good with the camera.  Roll Eyes
