I finished this last evening while watching the Olympics. Wasn't quite sure what to do with myself afterward. I'm just thrilled with this finish, it's every bit as nice as I thought it would be. It was very easy to stitch and I couldn't seem to stop, always saying "just one more motif and then I'll quit for the evening."
I've ordered Quakers and Quilts and will stitch that as a companion piece, it uses all the same colors. Now to figure out what to stitch while waiting for that order to come in!
I'm originally from England and my husband and I now live in Arkansas, we've been here in the USA since 1975, and in Arkansas since December 2000. I became an American citizen on June 9, 2008. I learned to do needlework as a young girl and have never lost interest. I always have something on the go; cross stitch, Hardanger, knitting, crochet, something to do with a needle!
I'm a mother to two grown sons, one living in the USA and the other in London, England. I'm also Nana to two girls.
I work full-time at our local community college as an Administrative Assistant and I'm a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), an organization I've been associated with for over 30 years.
