It's a FFO!

In between shoveling and snowblowing this weekend, I created this FFO (fully finished object).  I stitched it back in 2012 and had been meaning to try the "book" finish tutorial on the Little House Needleworks blog.

Summer Mystery Sampler SAL 
Stitched 7/7/12 
Designer: Donna Bayliss of By The Bay Needleart
Fabric: 28ct Sky Blue Hand-dyed Linen
Fibers: DMC

Decoupaged onto a paper mache "book".

Oh, I really like this style of finishing off a project. It would fit in nicely with almost everything here since we've books everywhere! All the blue is very peaceful. :D
