John Foster ,Almost Done!!

I am finally able to get back to my stitching!! Yea!! John Foster will be done in just a short time.  I totally changed the border color.  I'm using the soft gold.  The color that was called for was a very light sort of lavender.  It would not have gone well with the changes I made along the way.  The pattern called for a pinkish red house.  I changed it to a barn red .  That required a few more changes.  I do love the way it has turned out.  The SBA says it might become his favorite!! Tonight I will finish the bee hive and the bees and the red flower on the far right.  That leaves half of the border,  the first half took 3 nights of stitching.  I guess that means it should be done in 4 stitching nights!! Thank you so much for taking a look!!!!! Hope the week is going well!!


 Wrinkles have caused that line in the bottom part.  It's really all the same.  I iron after I'm all done.

 I love that garden maze.


That border takes a bit of time to stitch!
