Only the backstitching left to do

I got all the stitching done on this tonight. Just the backstitching left. Which is going to be another week or so of work, but I should have this done fairly soon. I made a couple mistakes on this one, but that's OK. Only God is perfect and I bet Marilyn with Stoney Creek couldn't figure out where the boo-boos are. It felt so good to realize that, when I wound that 320 back on the bobbin, it was the last time I would pick up 320 for this project. Woo hoo. Now to just figure out why it has a wierd pucker to the fabric. I think it's just from washing it the other day, and it'll work out when it's ironed.

Now to work on some small, NONREALISTIC projects, and to enjoy the state fair.

Gorgeous! congratulations on finishing the cross-stitching portion of this, but I sure don't envy you all the backstitching.

This is just so pretty! I admire people who stitch these things...I could never do it but do love how it looks once done!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
