Yea! I finished up The Sparrow and am thrilled with how it turned out considering this piece has been through the wringer with spills, rinsing out and mistakes on my part (I had to make a few adjustments here and there to avoid days of frogging). Excuse the wrinkles but those don't effect my joy right now! As you can tell, I figured out how and where to put my Dad's initials along with the years of his birth and death. This is such a meaningful piece to me for so many reasons and all bringing back memories of some sort about my Dad. After a short break where I focus on some neglected housework I will turn my attention to my last stitch of the year.
I have a terrible problem that whenever anyone walks through our house every picture on the walls goes bonkers and they all end up hanging haywire like an earthquake had struck so while we were out doing our usual errands I picked up some new double sided sticky stuff to hold them in position that won't hurt the walls (or frames). I haven't used it yet but when I do I'll let you know how it works. I was told at the store that they have to constantly restock it because it sells so good and so fast.
I do have some sad news. The sampler, Good Things by Notforgotten Farm fell off the wall and the frame broke. Now I have to go out and look for a new frame. I hope I can find another one either just like the old frame or maybe one I like even more! *fingers crossed*
