I am thrilled to report I have a finish with my Owl and Cactus cross-stitch.
At our last check in I was here
I decided not to backstitch around the flowers. Attempting it a few times, I just could not get a smooth soft curved feel. One to take things quite literally, including directions and not working outside the box, I threw caution to the wind and left the flowers alone. I think it looks ok. Now to have it blocked and framed and it will be ready for gift giving.
For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving I wanted to wish you a wonderful day next week filled with lots of love and laughter and for those of you who aren’t, my wish for you is the same 🙂 Ours will be a quiet day as all the children are scattered into the cosmos of life outside of Washington state with their children. We have decided on 2 cornish game hens in an orange marmalade glaze, wild rice and a favorite shredded carrot soufflé.
Please take a moment or two to stop by the others in this SAL. There’s a lot of great projects in works. And if you would like to join along ~ please contact Avis at the link below and she will be happy to give you the details. It’s easy and fun!
