Susan finished this in February, then she finally framed it in April. The original design was rectangular and much bigger, with a lot more items, but I wanted it to be less than 8″ square to fit in this frame. So Susan pulled items from other areas and re-designed it to fit.
The finished design is about 7 1/4″, so it fits perfectly inside the matting. It hangs on one side of Susan’s bay window in the kitchen so Susan would like to make another one the same size to fit on the other side of the window. This is from the Susan Bates Cross Stitch Sampler book.
