Fully finished and framed!
Turns out, I already had a perfect frame in my little frame cubby, so I laced it up and popped it in there. (I think I found this 5x7 frame last year sometime at TJ Maxx or Tuesday Morning...I can't quite remember.) Love the beaded edge!
I changed a couple of things, but it looks pretty close to the original. My conversion is below. All colors are Gentle Art unless noted.
I did switch a couple of things like the hair on girls #2 and #3 (Fudge Ripple - I used a dark section for #2 and a light section for #3). I didn't stitch the center of the leaves on the flower, but just left them blank. Girl #1's hair is Soot.
Again, the linen is 36 count Parthenon by Colour & Cotton, and I just love it. It's nice and light without being too plain.
All in all, just charming!

I'm Robin, the designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
