I was pleasantly surprised at how fun this was to stitch! I didn't do the blue border, it did nothing for me. I plan to either frame it in an oval frame or an oval mat.

I picked these two pieces up from my framer a while ago. They are Farmers Market Fruits and Vegetables by Sam Sarah Designs. I finished the fruits in 2014 but wanted to wait until the vegetables were finished to have them both framed at the same time, matching of course.
The vegetables were done as a round robin with 5 other stitching friends. When it came back home to me, I couldn't find the buttons that needed to be added. I found the buttons recently, but had to hunt for the stitched pieces. Luckily, they weren't in storage, just in the 'finished but unfinished' bin in the closet, so I add the buttons and went off to the framer. They will hang in the kitchen once it is remodeled.

Needle's Nest is the EGA Chapter that I belong to. Actually, I am the current president. During the summer months, we have some "Saturday Sessions" for stitching and finishing. One is all day, and the other two are half days. This past Saturday was our all day session, and the project we did was the Christmas Biscornu by Sue Hillis. Sue designed this one originally for an EGA Chapter in Virginia, with plans to teach it in other places, but she had trouble getting more antique spools. I stitched the model for her at that time. She recently acquired more spools, so she let me teach the class at our guild.
We began that day with coffee and bagels, and then got to stitching.
We broke for lunch and then stitched some more. It was a great day stitching with friends!
