Sense and Sensibility finished!

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. :)

Congrats ! I have watched you speeding along on this one. It turned out beautifully. I also love, love your signing off picture.
God made the earth so pretty, if we just take the time to look at it. I often times will look up at the clouds, the trees and bugs that fly around night and day. There is always something beautiful to look at or that lands on your person. Those darling ladybugs. I vote for the LHN they are so soothing to stitch on.
Great work keep it up. Look forward to your next project.
Thanks Tracey for coming by and leaving your comments. I do appreciate it so much.
God Bless ~

Congratulations on your beautiful finish. This is one of the charts in my stash. I am thinking I might do a Sense & Sensibility marathon week (after school is back in session) to begin stitching this one.
