Under Tall Pines Again

Not too long ago, the Hubmeister and I decided to go on another camping adventure. I looked around for an appropriate project to take along with me. Generally, as soon as we make base camp, we chill out for the rest of the day, as was this case this last time around. I began this project right before we started making s'mores, which are just lovely. And if you have not substituted Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, might I suggest you run, do not walk to your nearest campsite and partake of this nectar of the Gods:

And now that we all have gone into a sugar coma :P, here is my latest finish. I really like the way this one has turned out. I am keeping the kit as I plan on stitching this one a few more times. And probably with the perforated paper that was included! :D

Design: S'mores (MH18-4206)

Designer: Mill Hill

Fabric Used: 32ct Vintage Country Mocha Belfast linen

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in 347, 433, 434, 436, 938, and Blanc. 

Stitchers' Notes: Purchased at LNS. Substituted 32ct Vintage Country Mocha Belfast linen for the included Mill Hill perforated paper in 14 count PP3 antique brown. From the 2014 Mill Hill Harvest Collection of beaded kits. Finished Saturday, September 17, 2016.

Time for me to bolt for the door. Lots to do today. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
