One Done!

When Chris and I built our new garage, we saved the windows from the old one. I used one of the old windows to make this gift for my mom for Christmas a few years ago. Chris sanded the window down and we used a crackle finish on it to give it the old and weathered look.
I have finally started on one for myself. I have finished the stitchery for one of the panes so far.

I still have to tea dye it to make it look like it has been around for years. I have 5 more to go. I enjoy working on this kind of thing. It is a relaxing thing to do in the evening while watching TV. I will post some of the others as I get them done.
