For my report this round, I have a finish! Last time we checked in, I was here:
And here is the finished piece! I framed it yesterday and gave it to my husband as an early anniversary present. After 28 years we are both a little weathered, but still standing strong!
This is from a series called American Barns found in three issues of Cross Stitch & Country Crafts dated September 1992 through January 1993. This is the western barn, which is perfect for DH, because he was a summer rangelands technician in the Flat Tops Mountains of western Colorado during college.
To represent me, I’ll stitch the Midwestern barn, which reminds me of the barn at my uncle Thor’s in northern Minnesota. He and his brothers built it themselves with their dad in 1906, when they immigrated from Stavanger Norway. We had no big barn on our place, the milk barn was built in the 40’s and had no charm, though I do remember falling asleep with a newborn calf or two back in the day.
Afraid you can’t see much yet!😉
