My oldest daughter made two beautiful cross-stitch pictures for me. One shows a back-to-school scene with a quilt, lunch pail, slate and books. I placed this piece in a rustic wooden frame.
The second piece shows a quilt, and a sunbonnet on an old wooden chair.
I decided to make this into a wall hanging, using a 3-½ inch Dresden Plate as the center and half Dresden plates along the edge.
The quilting is also done in a half-Dresden Plate design.
The finished hanging measures 18 x 23 inches.
It’s nice to have two new end-of-summer pieces to display.
