My Big Finish

I feel that the Star Wars theme should be playing at this moment.  I finished my first flat fold and managed to find the camera.  Whether or not the pics are OK, is another epic tale.  So without further adieu......


Lizzie Kate "A Sister"
Please forgive the mess in the back ground.  I was super excited and couldn't wait to take the pics.  I was able to complete this fine piece of work (yes, I am tooting my own horn) with the help of Vonna at The Twisted Stitcher.  Her tutorials page is linked to her blog.   A wonderful inspiration for so many projects.  If you haven't seen her blog, I highly recommend you take a gander.  Be warned, you will want many many things (he he he). 
I should mention its a bit crooked, but I figure with one eye and a handy hubby, it looks good (for a first try).  I may try cutting the boards for the next one myself to see if I can do it.  Thank goodness for 50% off coupons.  It makes experimenting really easy.
I also finished the stitching on my Anaconda last night.  I will be done with the back stitching sometime tomorrow so I can get that baby off in the mail.  I am so proud of that piece also.  Its by far, the most difficult piece I have stitched.  Confetti stitching now makes total sense to me.  I am in awe of those of you who have mastered the technique.
Well folks, that's it for today.  I will have an updated pic of my Anaconda and the supplies for the pin keep I will be working on over the week end later this week.  Thanks for stopping by.

What a great finish. I really should do more than just frame my finishes but I don't enjoy the actual sewing part!

Very cute! At first I thought you had attached some type of green ribbon but then realized it was your stitching in the background!

Happy stitching on your next project.
