Was started on January 22nd and will be stitched for my parents 50th anniversary. I found it in the April 2000 issue of The Cross Stitcher Magazine. It’s a photo album cover that I’m converting to just a framed picture. I’ll be adding a gold heart charm that’s been converted from a button. The chart isn’t very big, roughly 5” by 7” when it’s finished. So it should only take me at most 2 weeks to get it finished and framed. Then I really must put in some work on Camelot Sampler before I get started on Maryann’s wedding announcement.
Finished my stitching project for Mark & Nina in record time – 58 days! I finished “Our Days” on January 8th with 3 full weeks to spare. I had the stitchery washed, & laced by Tuesday. Purchased an off the shelf frame w/glass and had a double mat cut on Thursday. I waited until Saturday to put it all together, take a picture, and wrap it up.
I’m really quite happy with it, although the digital photo is slightly out of focus. [ sigh ]
I have been stitching off and on throughout most of my life after being taught at the tender young age of 9. While stitching has come and gone in my life, the years since 1997 have brought out a renewed passion for cross stitching. It has become my life-line in many situations and I'm so glad that I can share it with all of you.
