Jane Rees Finished

Last night I put the final stitch in Jane Rees by SL. Stitched using 36 ct vintage autumn gold and NPI 404. Started her in 2007 but had to stop when I fractured my elbow. Picked her back up in February 2012. It took 34 stitching days to finish.

Finished Anniversary of the Hearts Series

Last night I finally put in the last intials for Anniversary of the Heart Series by Blackbird Designs. I was able to get each of my sisters and brothers name in the piece. For each sister or brother I added their husband and childrens names. For Wynne I added this years date. She's going to be a grandmother for the first time.
For my daughter(Christa) I added a ball of wool. Knitting is her favorite hobby. For the bonus block I added Canada for everyone on the block. For Don Hearts Rose I'm going to search for some tiny old buttons to sew on it. Rose made some beautiful items.
