I put in my last stitch this evening. I LOVE how it turned out! Its tooo fricken cute!
Ive wanted to stitch this since I first seen it.... but never got around to it. Well earlier in the year, the challenge was up out to stitch a "Series SAL".. well I thought, heck, I think I will start Snapperville. And then a SAL was started on the Bent Creek Yahoo group, so I was able to use the Snapperville for that challenge too. Great motivation!
I didnt have the right color fabric that just spoke to me. So I was chatting with my online friend, and she mentioned that she could dye some fabric for me. So I took her up on the offer. She dyed the fabric to exactly the color I wanted! Its a light taupe color, and I LOVED it. Thanks Vickie!
I stitched Snapperville on 32ct over 2 with DMC floss. Awhile back I had see someone have a finish of their Snapperville, and I LOVED it. So I *copied* their style, and created it on mine. The orginal saying on the Snapperville border was "Teach us... that we may feel the importance of every day of every hour as it passes." Well, I took the idea I had seen and used it. So now my phrase says... "North or South East or West Farm or Town Home is Best" If you look between South and East, I stitched a compase with the North and south points indicated.
It still needs to have the snaps and buttons put on. I do plan on getting it framed, and it will be going somewhere around the house.
