And now what you REALLY want to see....the framing!
This is the final pic Jill sent before shipping it back to me. Isn't it lovely?!?!? I haven't yet decided where to hang it in the nursery, plus I've been toting it about and showing it off. hehehe I couldn't be happier...Jill's style is perfect for this design, and it was soooo affordable. I wish I lived closer to her shop!
As for stitching, I've worked a bit on my neglected Neighborhood RR square, DH's Labyrinth design, and while we were traveling I broke out Victoria Sampler's "Iowa" Hearts of America kit (it seemed appropriate!). The heart is almost done; now I'm looking for some tips on finishing heart shapes. Can anyone help me out? Also, I signed up for a Halloween exchange over at HOE, so I need to start planning/stitching for that as well.
And now for the SBQ, courtesy of Lee:
Is there anything you do while you are stitching that is kind of weird or unusual? A quirky habit maybe? Or anything that you do that makes you think, Hey...I wonder if anyone else does this?
Not really! I do stop every so often and hold whatever I'm working on at arm's length to admire it, but I think we ALL do that. LOL (Although I DO sometimes like to take off my glasses, hold the piece right up to my face, and tilt it so I can see the texture of each individual stitch...I blame my perfectionist/OCD tendencies.) Other than that, I just sit happily in my stitching chair, watch TV, and drink the occasional caffeinated beverage. Yum.
