A big finish and thank you!!

First I would like to thank all of you for your kind words about Felisca. It was a lot harder than I thought and I still miss her, especially when I am stitching. She would either sit on the arm of my chair or in my lap while I stitched. After eighteen years of that, it does seem very odd not to have her around.



Now, I do have some finishes to share with everyone. The first one is a square I stitched for Cole's Love Quilts. I think it is so pretty. I used a pattern from one of the Leisure Arts Christmas Remembered series (I have the whole set). I especially love the way the M in Mary looks like a butterfly.


The second finish is the biggie. I finished Midsummer Night's Fairy. She is so beautiful. I worked exclusively on this project this week to finish. The fabric is perfect. I can't wait to have her framed so I can hang it in my craft room.

Now on to some more power stitching. I need to finish the dalmatian puppy for Nicholas next week. I am also stitching a couple of exchanges that are due this month.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Wow, wonderful project. I remember my crosstitch project of a cat of different season. I made it during my high school time and I didn't frame it yet.

Congratulations Jen on a gorgeous finish!!!I look forward to seeing the Fairy piece framed.
I see you are doing another block for Cole's Quilt... I shall pop on over to see if there is a child in need. :)
Will you be getting another cat to keep you company while your stitch???

Great finishes, esp. the Fairy. I'm sorry you're still missing Felisca, you probably will for a long time. One of my cats is 14 yrs. old and I'm very attached to her. TFS.
