Description

I started stitching this about 10 years ago. I finished the little girl's face, then put it away as life got busy. I pulled it out of storage sometime last year and have plugged away at it between other projects. It was originally intended as a birthday gift for my sister because the little girl looks so much like my niece. Well, now I am hoping to finish it by her birthday in June. :) About a decade over-due!

6/14/2013 -- Bought a frame at Hobby Lobby and got it all put together. Quite chuffed with the result. Pics coming soon! :)

What a gorgeous and sweet piece of stitching and so much work!

True Thank you! The work is something I under-estimated when I started. I was about 13 then! This was my second cross-stitch, the first being a small (5x7, roughly) piece. I see a theme in my life of just jumping into fun crafts and hoping it works out. :) I can't wait for this to be done, though.

what a beautiful piece. You're sister will fall in love with this. Will you frame this or make it into a pillow?

Kathskrafts I will probably frame it. I sure hope she will like it, as it's taking me forever to work it!
