Thank you all for your very sweet comments on my TIF for January. You are so encouraging!
In answer to Judith's question, yes, I did have those goals for the challenge in mind that I stated in my last post.
I'm now embarked on a little project that will be a birthday gift for my dear cousin Carol. She and her brother are the owners of the old family cottage now, and she graciously hosts me there on the banks of Lake Michigan for a week every summer. I thought this would be a nice way to let her know how much she means to me.
There are a few hours' stitching on here at this point...
Can you see where the oval shape is marked in pencil? I want to make a little crazy pieced frame around the central picture once it is all embroidered.
But I've only got until Monday to get the whole thing completely finished and mailed...so I'd better keep my needle in gear!
