PostSubject: I warned you....   Sun May 13, 2007 9:56 pm

Back when I posted Rachel's finished cross stitch project, I told you that I'd probably drag you all into my house to see mine when it was finished. Well.........I warned you! grinsmiley I started this just before my littlest nephew was born. I took a year off working on it when he was very young, because he was so weak - we weren't even sure that he would survive. And now, thank the Lord, he's a healthy little five year old. And he just told me again that he's going to marry me when he grows up. Love He'll figure out soon enough that things don't work that way.......but what an honor to have the little fella's heart.



The picture is about two feet tall.



*Savannah excitedly grabs her friends by the arm, and pulls them in to view the culmination of five years' work*

:shy: Thank you. There are a lot of memories in all of those stitches.

Oh - I forgot to mention the frame.....

It's an antique frame that I found at a yard sale about seven years ago. It had a hideously ugly picture in it, but the frame was so lovely that I bought it to keep for a future cross stitch project. Two years ago, I finished up a big project, but the frame was too large for it. So I took it to a frame shop and asked if they'd be able to cut it down to fit the project. The man looked at the frame and said "If you insist, I will......But I'd really rather not. They just don't make frames like this one anymore". So, I didn't have him cut it.

This is just beautiful, Savannah! Great work, you did! Applause Thumbsup
The frame and the motive go so well together... good that you refused from cutting the frame for the other project.

BTW: Now that this picture is finished, don't you think it's time to start with this "Go tell it on the mountain"-motive, you told us about in the old forum? grinsmiley (sorry, I couldn't resist teasing you with this one again)

I'm going to take you garage sale-ing with me. You keep finding treasures that are amazing (flute, picture frame)
Your work is beautiful. I would love to be able to do that kind of work but I don't have the eyesight for those tiny stitches. Congratulations on finishing your project.

Savannah, this is goooooorgeous!!!! OhMy I LOVE to cross stitch, but I know how time consuming they are! As much as I would love to attempt one from the 'Gold Collection', I know it will sit unfinished for the next 20 years! Whistle Congrats on this...what an accomplishment! I'm inspired now to start a new, 'less complicated' one! Keeps my hands busy in the evening so I won't snack! grinsmiley
