I just finished this embroidery of a farm scene from a pattern that I got from the Flickr group, Hoop Love. I thought it would be fun to name it Hayfield Cottage because there are haystacks and hayfields in the picture. This is probably the largest embroidery I have done yet, I learned a few new stitches and had a lot of fun stitching it.
I used several different types of threads, just going with whatever took my fancy as I went along. The next thing is a Blackbird Designs pincushion, one of their Reward of Merit small designs.
It was done with Gentle Art Sampler threads and the backing fabric is the same as the one in the background.
Now, my post wouldn't be complete without a couple of kitty pictures, would it?

Thanks, again, for taking the time to visit my blog and thanks, also, in advance for any comments, I always love them.
