The final stitches were added late last night. It was only after awakening this morning that I realized I didn't stitch the "e". Arrgggh! Actually, I am pretty happy that I noticed it before I took a picture and posted it here - that is when I usually discover that I left out a few stitches. (Looking anxiously at my photo now to make sure all is well.) The only change I made was to stitch the "m" and the "s" in the darker terracotta floss to subtly make my initials prominent. This was a fast, fun stitch. Now the hunt is on for a suitable frame.
Last weekend, Carol of The Polka Dot Chicken contacted me concerning my WMHBlooms chart. It seems she has been trying to purchase or trade for this chart for quite some time. I could certainly relate as I looked and bid on ebay for a while before I was able to get mine. I could tell she wanted to stitch it as much as I did when I was in search of this elusive chart. We were able to work out a trade and I am just thrilled with what she offered me in exchange.
I hope you all had a wonderful and restful weekend. We finally got some relief from the heat but along with it came clouds and drizzle all weekend. More perfect weather for stitching. Have you noticed that when it is really hot and sunny outside - perfect stitching weather. When it is rainy outside - perfect stitching weather. What weather isn't perfect for stitching? LOL
