Goode Huswife "Sparrow's Song".....

Goode Huswife "The Sparrow's Song"
Stitched on 32ct. Lakeside Buttercream
w/ recommended DMC

I just love this design and Faye was nice to let me borrow it.  I finally finished it today after piddling with it for a few weeks now.  I was reminded of my grandmama the entire time I stitched.  She loved hymns and one of her favorite was "The Great Speckled Bird"....I can hear her singing it now.  In her memory, I stitched the year of her birth and her first inital. 

I picked up the Buttercream linen the last time at was at Amy's from Down Sunshine Lane and I love this linen!  The color is so soft and pretty.... I think it is my new favorite!

I have been very busy with work so I have been stitching ornaments for the upcoming Pals Fall Fling.  I don't know about all of you but I am definitely in the mood for some autumn and Halloween stitching!
