My sincerest apologies for the long hiatus between posts. I was unaware just how busy things could get around my house. My last update was prior to finishing the Angel of Christmas for my grandmother. I am happy to say that not only was it finished, but also framed and ready for delivery on time!
Now for the bad news. Regardless of the crazy amount of packing and bubble wrapping done, the lovely folks who load and unload bags on a plane managed to shatter the glass at some point en route to my destination. Fortunately the actual project remained unharmed, however dealing with shattered glass in my suitcase was less than thrilling.
This is the finished product! Yay! The first cross stitch I have completed from start to finish. Ever. I am quite pleased with the outcome. (I apparently forgot to take a photo when it was matted and framed. Oops).
I received, courtesy of my mom, a new project from my wish list. "Wine a Bit" by Sue Hillis Designs. This one worked up extremely quickly and seems to have come with enough fabric to make two designs. I'm not yet certain if the thread will be enough or if I will need to purchase more.
I'm hoping to have this one completed and framed by this weekend. I can feel another trip to Hobby Lobby in my near future!
That's all I've got for the moment folks! Please feel free to follow and leave a comment so I can check out, and follow, your blog too!
