Blessings of the season

As we near Thanksgiving, I thought I would post a finish from a few years ago. This one is called Harvest Blessing, by Sue Hillis. It was probably the third or fourth Sue Hillis design I stitched, and also the third or fourth piece on linen/evenweave. This was the second time I had ever used a specialty fibre. The border and lettering are all done in Wildflowers Fiesta, by Caron. It is a highly varigated cotton, single strand, very much like a perle cotton. I really enjoyed working with it, and it has become my favorite fibre!
