Precious Moments "Counting our Moments Together"
Stitched on 18 cnt cream colored aida using DMC floss 2 over 1
Started Nov. 10, 2014 Finished Feb. 16, 2015
I finally finished this thing!! Just in time, too! My parents will be here tomorrow! I'm so excited that I finished it! It was a small piece, only took about 3 months to do but it was a bear of a project. I have a few counting mistakes, but I fudged it, and worked around them, and you can't see them!
It looks like it is not centered in this photo,(top to bottom) because of the angle I took the picture to avoid the glare on the glass, but it is!
I added DMC metallic (The devils thread! I hate this stuff! the tangles, and the fraying are awful) to the backstitching on the #50 and in the hour glass, just to add a little bling.
Well, now I am freed up to work on some other projects. I am going to pull out "Web of Life" and "The Dragon" and slot them into the spots in my rotation that this piece was occupying, in hopes that I will see a finish on Web very soon.
And! I am also super excited as I ordered some 25 and 22 count fabrics to work my HAED pieces. It wasn't supposed to get here until tomorrow, but it got here on Valentines day! So, now I have fabbies to get started on my new HAED pieces....not that I should, but I CAN! I also bought new ink for my
3-in-1 so I can make working patterns for them as well. So, we will see if I actually break down and start a new one, or if I'll be good and wait until I have another finish. We will see.
I probably will not be posting much if at all the rest of this month as my parents will be here, so got lots of visiting to do!
Joyful stitching everyone!!
