A quick post to report that I have finished my hexagon stitch-a-long!
We are in Cincinnati as I write this, visiting #1 Daughter and our son-in-law. When we return to Montana, I will take it to Michael's for framing - they have always been immensely helpful in choosing a frame and matting that complements the piece.
During our visit, we have continued to discuss the wedding cross-stitch design, which I wrote about in my January 14 post. At that time, I pitched utilizing StitchFiddle as my pattern creator, and also asked my readers for input. People suggested Stitch a Photo as an alternative, and I called one of my favorite cross-stitch shops for advice - Stitch a Photo! This pattern creator charges a fee for the design (at StitchFiddle you can opt to pay for a Premium version), and I am willing to pony that up if it ensures a quality design, and more importantly, a quality result! I have been communicating with Gail at Busy B Crafts (creator of Stitch a Photo), and she has been so helpful. Stay tuned for more details!
In the meantime, we are having a fabulous time celebrating my 60th birthday, and I might just get in a little stitching time during the Super Bowl today!
*my sister gifted me finger-less gloves and a matching headband!
