Cross Stitch some smalls


I had to add aida to the bottom of my project, it looks okay.
I have to do something with the "always stitching".  

I think I am going to have to get a bigger bowl.  A full finish in cross stitch does take time.  Learning as I am processing.

cross stitch small makes me happy.

I finally did a bowl of smalls & its was fun! 

 The white frame has a hallowen photo on it and the fame is made out of bee wax. The witch is from Plum Street Sampler, pumpkin and house was Prairie Schooler; fresh eggs by Hand Design & the liberty by Lizzie Kate.
The bee wax frame is from 1890 gable house goodes.


I added some old jewelry.
I am working on full finish in the cross stitch language.  The basket cost
$1.99 at a thrift sore & I also got the sunflower.  The groud was given to me by a friend.
