More Stitchmaynia Finishes



This was a fun and quick stitch project from Lizzie Kate.  The pattern is included in the Yankee Doodles leaflet.  I used all DMC.  The thread colors are:. 304, 712, 930, and 322 per the pattern instructions.  Coffee/ tea dyed Aida fabric used.  



This is a Rovaris chart with a farm theme that fits me perfectly.  I used all the called for DMC flosses as shown in the photo.  I did modify the chart slightly from the published pattern.  I am not sure what element I like the best:  the bee skep, the flowers or the chicken.  Fabric is Fiddler's Aida 16 count in life oatmeal.  
When I first saw this chart I just knew I would have to stitch it!  I hope you like it too.  
Happy Stitching!
