Barns and Barnwood

Good morning!
Look at this! I am so in love with this piece... isn't mine .. it's my daughters..but I did finish it! Little House Needleworks ..The Old Red Barn ..she left off the bottom checkerboard and used all the called for threads ..28 count tea coffee dyed eveweave..
The wood piece it is on is 3 pieces of barnwood cut and screwed together with a board on the back (her husband did that part)  she got the barnwood at a vintage store ..I mounted the piece on sticky needlework board ..then mounted a piece of greyish blue ticking on another sticky board ..those got glued together. For the decoration on top..I used burlap, wired burlap ribbon, ripped and knotted pieces of the ticking and some green homespun.. 2 fall picks, some leaves and a big vintagy looking sunflower...
I have to stitch this one is amazing!
