Itty-Bitty Autumn Fence

After finishing my piece for the Autumn Exchange, I had more fence pieces in my craft room and few more small patterns on my mind...so I stitched this up and put it together.
This was a Prairie Schooler design that was published in The Gift of Stitching magazine (it may have been released elsewhere after that, but I don't know).  I stitched it as charted on 28-ct. natural evenweave, and mounted it on a piece of wooden "fence."  It is about 2 inches square.  I had a chunk of the fence left over, 2 vertical lengths wide so it wouldn't be usable for another stitched piece - I cut it at an angle and glued it to the back to make this a "stander" instead of a hanging ornament.  Right now it is standing on my kitchen windowsill!

Cute design and a great way to display it.
I haven't looked at my back issues of GoS for ages, I should have a computer afternoon browsing them!
