NW-38 Sheltering Tree Autumn

NW-38 Sheltering Tree Autumn

Model stitched on
 28 ct. Pearled Barley linen by Lakeside Linens,2 over 2, using 
Gentle Art Sampler threads.

Aged Pewter
Dark Chocolate
Old Brick
Wheat Fields
Terra Cotta
Pumpkin Pie
Country Redwood

The stitch count is 94 X 89.

I finished mine by mounting it on acid free matte board,

 and then I mounted some coordinating cranberry homespun fabric 
on a foam core board that is cut 1/2 inch bigger on all sides
 to frame it.

 I hot glued these pieces together 
and put them face down on a couple layers of
 terry cloth towel (so as not to crush the cross stitches)
 and layered lots of heavy books on top.
The Gospel writers are always glad to help!

When that was all dry and firm I used applique glue to attach a thin hemp cord all around the cross stitch piece to give it a finished look.

I use Roxanne's Glue Baste-it. Look at that awesome tip! It places just the smallest dot of glue right where you want it.

I then hot glued it onto wooden slatted panel frame that I found at Hobby Lobby (item number 1303692). 
These frames are found in the wood section. They have a little easel on back perfect for standing them up anywhere you want a little cuteness!

Then I made a bow out of 1 1/2 inch cranberry homespun ribbon and attached a little burlap daisy I found in the floral section at Hobby Lobby.
 I hot glued that to the top and Wallah!
Super cute!

This cute pattern is the third in a series.
 If you want to stitch them all 
you can pick them up
 in my etsy shop
here and here!

If you stitch it send me a photo!
 I would love to see what you have done with it!
