Heather let me know that the gift I made for her arrived safely. I made a needleroll for her. I used a design out of an old issue of Counted Cross-Stitch Plus (1990). The design is by Kendal Bushnell and is called Delft Blue "Welcome". I really love how it turned out. Another one to add to my ever growing to "stitch for me" list.
I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments on ATC. :D His finished size is about 5"x7" (90x123) so he's not really a big piece but don't let that fool you, it was still a bugger to stitch. I will more than likely have him framed but not sure when it will get done. Another one of my piles I have..."waiting to be framed".
Today I worked on Woodland Faerie by TW. Before you get too excited, I wimped out and just started the backstitching on the border but it is progress! This is my last WIP and UFO so I really would like to finish her sometime this year but I am not holding my breath since I have worked on it for a year and half already. This is a progress picture before I started on the backstitching. I didn't get enough done to post an after picture tonight, maybe tomorrow:)
