I finally found something to stitch. I started Country Cottage Needleworks "Little Ballerinas" about a week ago and I finally finished it today. I would have finished it sooner but I had to order the Crescent Colours threads from Mary Kathryn and it took a little while for them to arrive. Anyway, they showed up in the post today and so I put the last stitch in around one o'clock this afternoon. I left the personalization blank because I wanted to save it in case Milsey and I have another baby girl. We would like to have another child but, with me being sick, it just hasn't seemed like the right time. I took the piece to a meeting this evening and one of the ladies fell in love with it. She said that her four year old grand daughter just danced in her first ballet recital and that my piece would be a perfect present for little Micaeli. I have never sold one of my pieces and I didn't know what to say to her. I have a very hard time parting with my work and wasn't sure if I should sell it. After talking to Milsey, I decided that I could stitch the piece again because I accidentally ordered the threads twice. I brought the piece home tonight and personalized it for Micaeli and Margie will pick it up tomorrow. I had also ordered the frame for it and so she wanted that as well. I still feel a little strange parting with my work, but I am sure that Micaeli will love it as much as I do. Below are pics of the finished piece and a pic of the frame.
After seeing Vonna's Miss Crescent's Crowne "All In A Heart" piece, I had to do it myself. I dug through my stash and found mine and so I started it today. It is a very easy stitch and I am enjoying it immensely. Well, I want to get back to my stitching. Have a wonderful evening.
