Carol, your inspiration, friendship and encouragement helped to make this a reality!
Speaking of "firsts," this was my first finish that was not in a frame....so many years ago....I remember finishing it the night before the class as it "had to be completed" by class time. It was only 14 ct!!! Still, I had 4 children under the age of five..so stitching could NOT be one of my priorities at the time. I was happy with the results just the same...and it hangs as a reminder of "my happy, busy as a bee times" that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
More to come.
Happy stitching and thank you for visiting :)
