The American Pillow, Finished

Hello again, needlework diary!

Finished this one last night, just in time for Memorial Day.  

It's from Handwork Primitives, which I can no longer find anywhere online.  

It had a very folk art feel to it...
...along with a lovely dark border. Normally I shun working with black.  It's so hard to see.  But this was no problem at all.

I love this red and white combination.

Here is my kit...

Cost & Info:
I probably won't be making this into a pillow.  I think I'll put a nice little black frame on it and hang it in a grouping,
This was a gift from my sisters-in-law (a gift certificate) Thank you!!
