First UFO Finish

My first Stitch to Finish is Cherry Hill by CCN . I saw on another blog where the stitcher put in more sheep than the words and I liked the look so "borrowed" her idea. This was a thread pack, so I used the Crescent Colors that came with it and it called for DMC 3865. I'm not sure of the color name for the fabric but it is 14 count from Sassy's Fabby's. All that needed to be stitched was the sheep, windows and a bit of grass. It does look much better in reality, I had to scan it as the camera battery needed recharging.
