Prairie Schooler - Home Sweet Home

This piece is stitched on Tula, 10 count, using Caron "Watercolors" fibers. I completely changed the colorway from the original Booklet 131, "Home Words" by Prairie Schooler. This will be framed and hang over the main doorway out of my main room. I first did this Tula/Watercolors switcheroo on the PS "Good St. Nick". Watercolors have that same overdyed look that's so popular now and a silky sheen too. I had to use the Tula to get a weave large enough to accomodate the thicker strand of Watercolors though.
