Can it really be a photo?

Thanks to the kindness of a certain SO of mine, I finally have a finish pic to post. Woo hoo. Happy dance with me!

This is Cedar Hill's Sheep on the Meadow, stitched on the simply amazing fabric that Julie sent me. Julie, this fabric was a HUGE hit at Sue's Stitch-in. I finished it on Saturday night, a little later than I had planned, but I was giving my friends Libby and Simchah a Hardanger lesson and got a little behind. So I finished it right around 8:30 on Saturday night.

I'm really quite happy with it. The little sheep really do stand out against the fabric beautifully and make it look like a meadow. I am planning on a barnwood- looking frame for it. Grey or brown would both look pretty good, but we'll have to see what they have available.

I have to run now. We have dinner reservations at 4 at the local crabhouse, and I have to go run to the store for some things before we go! I'll fill in the details about Sue's as soon as I get a chance, and hopefully will have photos to share. It was a blast. Sue is a gracious hostess and so neat to meet people. I run into the Maryland and Northern Virginia stitchers on 123 fairly frequently, and met the Canadian stitchers at CATS in 2006, but rarely the Tarheel stitchers and never anyone from the Midwest, so it was a treat!

Your stitching is beautiful! I'm dying for you to get your own camera so you can show me even more!

I'm so jealous of your weekend! I'd love to meet you all! :)

Awesome, Rachel! Your stitching is (as always) impeccable. I'm so glad you found something perfect for the fabric!! You're right, it does look like the sheep are in a meadow. Great job! =)

Wow, that's a great finish! It looks awesome. Be proud - you did an outstanding job. Love that fabric! :-)

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
