Winter Rose Finish!

Woo hoo!

Fuzzy picture, but the sparkle shows and that was more important to me. Glitter, sparkle, bling – these matter in my life. 😀

Winter Rose by MLI. Stitched on 28ct Skye Reflections by Silkweaver. As soon as the photo from my Mom arrives (she’s sending hard copies) all of it is going off to Jill Rensel. Great minds and all that… it was always my plan to frame Winter Rose & the photo together. Now since I’m running so late I doubt it’ll be ready for Christmas, but it is a joint present (from Mom & me) to Aunt Lorraine. Eh, better late than never.

I was also supposed to get my Drunkard’s Path block done this weekend. That didn’t happen. I spent all my time messing around Christmas shopping online and stitching Winter Rose. I did pull the threads for block 11 of HoHRH. I’m not sure what my next cross stitch start is going to be. It’s a toss up between HOE ornie (it’s kitted and laying in the middle of my coffee table right now) or HoHRH. I need them both done yesterday. *sigh*

    Yay! What a fantastic finish! Love the sparkle…that will be a great present to your Aunt Lorraine.

    Hmmm….I have the feeling the ornie will win out…

    Do some HRH, and then the ornie. 😀

    I think this design is an EXCELLENT use of sparkle, and your aunt will be over the moon on this one–you and your mom have outdone yourselves, I predict.

    Holy cow, you stayed up all night stitching! She is beautiful, Missy. Your Aunt Lorraine is going to love it!

    Better get the exchange piece knocked out first. You don’t want to be late!

    Love, love, love the sparkle! Your Aunt Lorraine is going to love it. Can’t wait to see what Jill Rensel comes up with.

    Christmas shopping, ornaments, YIKES! I know Thanksgiving is just a few days away but I keep pushing Christmas out of my mind.

    It’s beautiful 🙂 I’m sure the frame is going to be great and your aunt is going to fall in love with it 😉

    Wow! That was fast. And I do love the sparkle. It really suits this design.

  9. Winter Roses = Very Lovely. It will look even more amazing framed with the photo, and your Aunt will be stunned no matter if it is late!

    I hate you for even thinking about planning for Christmas already. You make me feel like even more of a slug than I am.

    That sure is a beautiful piece.
