Yeah.....it is finally finished!
The final stitches went in today and I cannot begin to tell you how elated I am to have this one finished.
This piece has traveled far and wide with me.
When I look at it over the years I will recall stitching it on airplanes, in boats and in cars. It has traveled to Italy, England, and more states than I can recall.
I will remember stitching while waiting in hospital rooms......on the sunny porch with a tall glass of iced tea.......or early in the morning with my cup (s) of coffee. Sooooo many stitches!
Today finally brought the last of those stitches.....and those teeny, tiny little glass beads. Threading the beading needles was as challenging as using the filament threads in the stitches.
My trusty companion was very helpful when her excitement tipped over my little container of berry beads. Sheesh.......try cleaning those little buggers up off the floor.
BUT.....it is done and I love the finish. Now it is off to the framer. Then there be years of enjoying it.
