Bookshelf Happy Dance!

I just put the last stitches into The Bookshelf. My scanner is not quite big enough to capture the whole thing, but you get the idea!


I did end up changing the quadrant for "Little Women" - I adapted a little tea motif from an old booklet and stitched it over one so it would fit in the area, adding in the names of the four sisters in backstitch. I thought books, tea, and a candlestick captured well the feel of Little Women. I am very happy with the result and can't wait to frame it!
