My secret project

Crazy me decided a week before my sister's birthday (8-22) to stitch her a birthday present. I am by no means a fast stitcher especially when health issues flare up.

Anyway, I never made the deadline. I did however finish it today.

I think it is soooooo cute.

So now I am going to show you what I have been working on.
I was able to pick up a nice frame that actually came with a mat that went perfectly. Here it is framed.
This is finish #9 for 2010! Time to pick up Jesus Wept and get some of that one done.

Dawn,
If you finished this project in a week, you are definitely a fast stitcher. Send me those fast hands when you're not stitching.
You are so thoughtful to make such an adorable project.
Thanks for sharing!
