Our DD gave me this kit for Christmas and I just finished it. It was fun to work on after supper as we watched TV--less snacking on my part!!! LOL

Beautiful work, I love the design - good for any decor or any season. Did you blanket stitch around all the pieces?

So pretty! Would love something like that. Do you happen to know where that came from?

Thank you, Ladies! She got it From Granny's Legacy--https://www.grannyslegacypatterns.com/shop/european-rhapsody

Carol--the appliques are attached with a blanket stitch--the vines are a stem stitch--and the red dots are French knots.

I have to share an "I Love Lucy" moment on my part!! When it came time to blanket stitch the backing to the black wool, I couldn't find the black pearl cotton!! I looked absolutely everywhere--lots of things got cleaned and St. Anthony heard lots of prayers!!! Still--no black thread!! Dang!! So, I bought a skein at Michael's for $1.90. But, I was still on the lookout for the errant thread. Then, today when I searched for the website to post where to buy the kit--I see that black thread is NOT included in the kit!!!! LOLOLOLOL It's nice to know I'm not crazy YET!!

Oh Karen, this is gorgeous! Wow...those colors are so beautiful and wool shows off
color better than any fabric I know of. Are the appliques wool too? So rich looking.

As for your "Lucy moment"....I have those often now! Gotta laugh at myself...what
else can we do lol!
