The Great Emancipator

I have been working on "The Great Emancipator"  Which is a quote by Abraham Lincoln in the "Fathers of Freedom" series by Summer House Stitche Workes.  I am liking it a lot.  It's a small piece but it's taking some time to do and with my work schedule I don't always get a lot of time.  Like a couple of days ago I came home from work and went straight to bed.... and I slept until the next day... ooopsie. haha.  I made only one change so far which is the fabric.  I went with lambswool instead of the tea dyed linen, I didn;t like the yellow fabric.  I thought the lambswool would give more of an authentic paper look that has been aged.  I quite like it :).  I am also planning on beading some of the boarder but that is still to be determined.
