My First Bourse

This is the bourse that I stitched for Carol S. for the HOE Fall Exchange.

The bag is cotton, and the design is from The Prairie Schooler Book 141, "Thanksgiving Comes Again."  I made several adaptations. My yellow was too light.

The verse, the date, and the wind swirls are stitched over one thread; everything else is over two threads. This design is stitched on 32ct. lambswool Lugana, and is stitched with DMC and a (French) overdyed floss that I received from ? (I'll put this in tomorrow).
