My picture is not the best. It was taken a little after midnight when I finished up the top motif.
Today, I was showing my projects to the ladies at my table. When I came to this one, Nancy got a little choked up and said, "It's Mom and Dad." (those are their initials near the bottom.) Then, I managed to choke out, "It's yours." We were both on the teary side. Nancy was pleased (I think!) with the project.
Now, I need to stitch it one more time for myself. I'll have fun choosing colors. Mom's favorite color was red and I believe Dad's was blue. A floss toss and fabric choices will definitely be upcoming.
This was another WIP in my stash. I had actually started it in 2015. I know this because my initials and the year are in the tiny band above the bottom band and it was dated. I had to pull out part of the 5 and make it a 7. That'll teach me!!
So, I have a total of 64 WIPs for the year with 4 finishes now. I'm feeling pretty good about this. I will be excited to see how many WIPs I'm able to finish this year. Hopefully there'll be a few more.
Have a great weekend!
