Finish-finished

Look at you all, congratulating me on seven years of inertia! (Actually 16, but who's counting?) I've been privately chastised for pretending not to be romantic when I have been stitching little love notes every anniversary for the past four years. Five if you count the one that got lost. It's true; we just prefer our displays of affection to be private. Last night we went to General Lafayette Inn where I had a matrimoniale, and the dude gave me a beautiful amber ring. Thanks again.

In my quest to increase the number of completed works that I finish, I put this little sheep that I stitched in January 2006 in his frame. Three down, five to go.

This is a Homespun Elegance kit, Wee Sheep stitched on the kit's linen with the called for DMC. It's finished in the brass frame that comes from the kit. I should aim for something bigger next.

I love that sheep! I've also stitched love notes (not for Anniversaries, for Valentines.) Actually, I've only stitched 3 or 4...wonder what was up with the other 13 or 14 yrs?!

Sheep! I like it finished in the little tin necklace frame. What are you going to do with it?

I love this! It looks a little like that kit I won from you with the Christmas tree. I love that you stitch something for him every year. I determined that I wanted to make something for Eric each year too. So far I have been within the theme (1st anniversary, paper, a book of his photos from our honeymoon; 2nd anniversary, cotton, the wedding quilt). No idea what to do for #3, but I'd really like to finish Tesori for him!
