Fabulous Finishing Friday

Better finished late then never...






"In God We Trust" by Plum Street Samplers
Freebie found Here
Stitched on 30ct dark chino w/ DMC
Applied to a stenciled basket
This is one of my favorite finishes to date. I am very proud of it.
All my Stars and Striped finishing stuff will go in the basket, so it's easy to find

Oh my goodness, this is the most darling basket ever! I'm so inspired. I want to do the piece really bad. I've got to put that in the car or something so I can work on it, if I ever need something to do. LOL. "Yea right. When does that ever happen?"
Thanks for the inspiration!
