Happy dance!! I finished it up last night. I love the way it turned out! I need to email my dad and give him the dimensions so he can make me a frame. :) I had a hard time getting a good picture of the whole thing, so I took one, and some closeups of the different little details.. (it was stitched on Summer Khaki belfast linen-32 ct, with recommended threads.)
The pictures are a little dark -sorry! I am still deciding what to work on next- it's a toss up between another Jane Austen pattern I just ordered or LHN's "Beach Cottage" (I think that's the name..) I'm in the mood to do something summery. David wants me to stitch him "Percy" from Thomas and Friends- I am putting it off for a little bit cause I'm not looking forward to stitching all that green. :P I need to catch up on my Stitcher's Alphabet too- I am still working on E- and there is that snowman I put aside that I need to finish too. So many options!
I came across this picture- I took it the night of David's graduation, it's a good signing off picture. :)
