two more finishes!

Okay, I'm cheating... this first one was stitched by my girlfriend. I did the backstitching for her since she hates it, but I loooove backstitching.

And a small kit on 11 count Aida that I did for my girlfriend. It would have taken less than a week if I'd been stitching regularly. Since I got busy/distracted, it took about two weeks from start to finish. :)

Also did some work on my round robin piece! I need to do more before sending it on. I added half of the blue sign (at top) and most of the blue outline/structure to the building at the bottom, plus some of the brown.

More to come... :)

oldest project ever

Well, oldest for me, anyway. I don't remember when I got this kit, but I know it's followed me around for at least ten years. I'm so glad it's done - I think it was about 90% complete on the stitching, but there was a TON of backstitching. TONS. I like backstitching and I am utterly sick of it right now.

I also think this project is hideously ugly, but maybe I just hate it right now.

Anyway, here's the finished product!
It does look pretty good in person, considering the kit is from 1990...

Whoops, it's also time for May's TUSAL photo! Here we go. :3
