Thank You Gift

I stitched this as a thank-you gift for my son's girlfriend, following my stay with them in Eugene. It's "Embraceable Ewes: September" (An Apple for You), by Moon Pi Madness.

It's stitched with DMC on linen. I chose to eliminate the bow at the sheep's neck, and the row of apples on the bottom. The chart featured only the picture so I added the letters from one of my Dover Publications books. I used buckram and some quilt batting to create a hanging. The back has sheep design fabric. I was rushed and didn't sew the edges straight, therefore no picture of the reverse side.

Hi,thanks for visiting. I love this cute ewe!! Very lovely stitching. BTW, I think the US postal accet mailarts. You could try asking at your local post office. My main local post office doesn;t accept mailart, so I went to a mini post office nearer my home and I'm surprise they accept my mailart. LOL.
