Sea to Shining Sea Finished!!

I got the final thread pack from Amy on Saturday and I was determined to finish it up yesterday!

Sea to Shining Sea Mosaic

Little House Needleworks "Sea to Shining Sea"
Fabric: 32 ct. Vintage Sea Storm by Lakeside Linens
Threads: Belle Soie Silks (1 over 2)


I had so much fun stitching this one. I really looked forward to every thread pack and the different silk colors. The only thing I changed was on Southwest. I used Icing for the windows and clouds instead of the gray. It was a little too dull for me.

Today I'm going to be working on Kind Fond Love Sampler. I hope to get either some of the words stitched or some trees. :) Write later!

  12. Nicole, its gorgeous. My last thread pack came today, and I can say that I finally finished that blasted border which seemed never ending. Yours is so pretty and I'm thinking to copy your change on the Southwest part, if you don't mind.
