A couple of finishes….
It’s been a looooong time coming……and here’s the proof….. but I finally finished a Christmas project in time for, well, Christmas!! Maybe not the Christmas I had originally intended…..buuuut…finished for Christmas nonetheless!!! So weird looking back on how my stitching has progressed…..2009 was when I really began stitching with a vengeance…..and my, doesn’t it show!!? Large stitches, ‘ordinary’ looking stitch lines……I was full of …..enthusiasm and lots to learn….but that comes with time and I think I’ve improved quite a bit since then! Nonetheless, I still just love the primitive naivety of my version of Leanne Beasley’s Christmas Sampler stitchery. Very Christmassy….and just in time!!!! hee hee My other finish is a more recent one…..started and finished in a couple of weeks!!!! Phew! This is a Christmas gift for my mother in law….a lady I love very dearly and who has taken me under her wing as her own…. I designed it in a shabby chic style and I just love it….I hope she does too…….and I sure hope she doesn’t cry (but I think she might)…..we’re both prone to that!!!!
