Rose Hill Plantation = Finished!!

I am happy to say that I worked out the chart for 2010 and stitched it all up this morning!  Quite easy !

I am super happy 


I am super happy with the way this turned out!  The fabric is just a little darker than what the photo shows and it is hand dyed linen - 32 count - 
It really did not take long to stitch up.  I had started it back in Sept 2010 - ran out of one of the specialty threads and when I went to pick it up the shop was out of it.  Then I finally picked up the thread and didn't have the time.   Now that my daughter has been married three months I figured it was high time to focus on this project and get it completed.  So glad I did!  I already picked out the frame from the LNS - now all I need to do is give this a good pressing - - using a towel on the back side of the stitched piece and no water in the iron as there are dyed threads in the work and I don't want it to bleed  - patience will get me through the pressing .  Hopefully by Friday I can bring it down to the LNS to have it framed - .  Cannot wait to show you the final piece.

Next up:  I started the LHN  "Love One Another"  - moving quickly - quite cute - 

Isn't he sweet???? - Since there is no back stitching , I was afraid the little lions face wouldn't show up but it does - soft and sweet.  Cannot wait to work on the lamb - (sheep) since I am using Wisper - for the soft wooly look!  Stay tuned!

Also started a HUGE - project - it is a freebie I found on the web - by HAED  called "Dreaming" - will post a photo as soon as I put some stitches in it.  I also have all kitted up another freebie by HAED - called "Stolen" - done in mostly blacks / greys / .  I have the notion of changing the pointy ears so it is more human - I am not into elves - or things of that nature - to each his own :)
