So she wants a header for her french doors and I am enjoying working on it so much....it was intimidating at first because of the different measurements it's 21 inches deep by 51 inches wide - getting the checkerboard edges equal was the dilly!
She sent me the small original hanging that she wants me to copy only in a larrrrrrg size.
So here's the progress....I'm doing this free hand with no patterns to cut by but it's coming out pretty darned good if I must say so myself...

GETTING IT MEASURED FOR BORDER
The backing is Coffee dyed Onsberg cloth and I got the color to match the original quite nicely.
HOUSE PIECES AND SHEEP ALL CUT OUT
TREES....the original has brown Herringbone wool for the trees and I had black Herringbone so I used a brown shoe polish rub and they turned out perfect! Yes, they look like Palm Trees...but when the leaves and apples get on them they won't.
OKAY....HERE'S A DON'T DO.....Don't walk in front of a blowing window air conditioner with your piecework!!!!! LOL
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL PIECE - Pretty isn't it....now the one I'm making is double this size and will have a rod pocket on the back so she can hang it over her French Doors
Hope you enjoyed my show and tell today!!!!
