Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
So, as you may recall, I've been working on some top secret projects. I find this rather exciting. :) As anyone who has ever crafted something knows, giving a handmade gift is rewarding. Very much so.
I can't share my progress with you! Well, not much, anyway. A few 'mystery' pics here and there gets kind of old after a while, am I right? And since I am working on several things that I can't share for fear that the recipients of these gifts may stumble upon my blog someday, I have very little to blog about. So I thought I would show you something I stitched many, many years ago.
This little Lizzie*Kate design was a freebie in my LNS's newsletter. It was one of the first times I used overdyed floss, and I immediately became addicted to the stuff.
Look closely. See the variegation of the pinks and greens? Isn't it pretty?
Wait. No, don't look closely. If you do, you will see how LOUSY of a framing job I did!
What's that? It's too late, you've already noticed how truly awful the finishing job is? You've seen how poorly the thing is mounted and how the sides are uneven and...wavy?
Well, er, um....I don't know what to say. I was careless. And I can't redo it, 'cause I cut the darn thing too small and it's barely bigger than the frame's opening.
Here, more pics!!
Cheer Bear, how'd you get in the pic? Silly bear.
Well, that's all for now. Sorry if this was a bit boring. I really can't wait to be able to show you what all I've been working on. I wish I could say it will be soon, but that would be a lie. I guess that means I just need to throw a couple new, non top secret projects in the mix, ones that I can share with you. :-D Until then...
PS If you're curious about those books you see underneath the stitchy piece, I highly recommend you go to the author's website. You won't be disappointed! :)
