Apples


40ct white linen
I started this one, maybe a year ago and had the border and the word Apples done. A couple of days ago I was looking for something and came across it and decided it was about time to finish it. My first cube finish and I'm really not pleased with it. I was stingy on the needles and didn't get the stitched piece as snug and straight as I should have, I rushed it too much. Oh well it's staying home and going to sit on my kitchen island to remind me to eat my apples.
