Mushroom Faerie House Completed & Framed!

Well, finally here it is!!! :~) Mushroom Faerie House is completed, washed, ironed & framed! :~) The frame is a metal frame with the border of the frame in a dark brown metallic color. I took the glass out completely, and used the mounting foam so that it's raised a bit. I think it turned out really nice.

Tonite we went over to my FIL's house & gave him his birthday gift. He absolutely LOVES it!!! He has already found the exact spot where he is going to hang it also. Right where everyone will see it as they are going thru the entry way into the livingroom!!! :~) It's going to look perfect on his wall too bcuz his hallway & dining room walls are painted pretty much the exact same color as the mushroom top! It's really going to POP the colors of this piece. I was so happy that he likes it so much. And I'm sure he will enjoy it for many years to come. :~)

Mushroom Fairy House Progress Day 7 ...

Well, I stitched & stitched yesterday as much as I could & was even late to the party ...

But alas, I didn't get the Mushroom Faerie House finished in time. I only have 2 shades of green to go & the wording. I thought for sure I'd have it done. But it just didn't happen. So now I am going to try to get it all finished today while my husband is at work, and then will meet my husband at his dad's house after he gets off work tonite. And if that doesn't happen today, then we'll do it tomorrow nite.

Anyways, here is the progress that I did make up until we left for the party.
