I had to delete a previous post, from May 17, due to an "oops" on my part. Most of it is re-posted below, with some editing to remove the photo, and certain other details. ;) Thanks to the ladies who commented on that item. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, and I think it will be enjoyed by the recipient.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented on Castle Sampler. It means a lot to be able to share my work with other stitchers. Sure, BF oohs and ahhs appropriately, which is wonderful, but it takes another stitcher to fully understand the hours and work that go into those large projects.
I haven't yet picked up another big project to work on, even though I have several already started. Instead, I've been focusing on smaller stuff for the last several days.
Those of you who stopped by between May 17 - 20 know what I was working on, and finished. Everyone else is going to have to wonder a bit longer. The object in question is a gift for a friend, who I didn't think was online. But I got an email from her this afternoon. Now, I don't think she has ever visited this blog, but I'm not taking any chances.
I'll have some cute little updated pics soon.
