I certainly couldn't forget Kim @ Wisdom with Needle and Thread, with her generous gift for HER birthday! She celebrated her 60th in July, and sent out 60 lovely packages to 60 lucky blogging friends. I don't have much patriotic stitching, so this was perfect! Take a look at her blog to see all the wonderful things she sent out. Thank you, Kim, what a wonderful way to celebrate YOU!

So I measured, ordered,
We started at the bottom, but most of them had to be cut because they were too long. Luckily DH got his saw thingy out which made it easier. The door had to be removed, it was just a bit cramped in there.
The end result? Love it!
It fits in perfectly for the ocean theme there. The only problem? It smelled sooo bad! I don't know if it was the wood or the glue/tape on the back, but it was horrible. I had the fan on for days and the plug-in air freshener helped.
We headed to Deep Creek Lake in October to see the colours.

Heading back home, passing through Sidling Hill, stitching away.
This was supposed to be for a friend's wedding and I was going to change the words, but it really wasn't her style. So I decided to keep it and make it smaller. The words are over one on 40 count, that was rough!
