WIPocalypse update and some finishing
Lots of pics!!
First up, my latest progress on the Labyrinth. I had high hopes of finishing this as a Christmas gift for DH....erm.....well, maybe for his birthday in March? I just can't get into it. But it IS progressing, albeit slowly.
Next, I bannerified the Lizzie Kate Autumn boxer.
There were a few issues with the banner - yes, that is a bit of a wavy bottom, and the sides aren't perfect, either - but I like it. It is hanging on the end of my kitchen cabinets, and my daughter has proclaimed it "piddy." LOL
And finally, I finished the forget-me-knots kit from Olde Colonial Designs. While I like the finished product, I'm not crazy about the kit itself. The pattern didn't match the cover picture - I had to add some flowers, and the color of the lettering didn't seem right (the pic looked green, but it was charted for blue, which is what I used). I did the framing myself with the included frame. Oh, and I backstitched my initials underneath the little heart charm!
