"Watermelon Picnic" by Kristy Goodin Soar

Another oldie- from the May/June '86 issue of Cross Stitch and Country Crafts. I stitched this because a) I liked the clean, simple look, and b) it went great in my then-country-themed kitchen.

I used to be able to find all kinds of that ribbon - and used a lot of it for circling the edges of hoops and mason jar lids. All the LNS's carried it in many different colors. Does it still exist somewhere? I found some solid red, white, blue, etc. at fabric stores, but with the extremely high cost of custom framing, I'd like to start doing my own framing and finishing. This ribbon would be handy for designs I put in hoops.

Let me know if you know where I can get some.
