Cross Stitch Finish

I can finally post about this now that Sarah & Joe have received it! I started this in June thinking, oh, yes, I will get it done by August - ha.ha.ha. Wasn't even close. And that doesn't count the time that it sat around waiting to be framed, and then the time it sat around waiting to be sent from the East Coast of the US to the West Coast. Sigh. I am a procrastinator! Anyway, it was sad to pack this one up since I spent so much time stitching (and frogging) this - but here are all my pictures to remember it by. :-) I need to update my cross stitch icon now! (next time I'm on my desktop, I'll have to do that)

Thanks! It was a lot of work, and it was probably the largest project I've done so far, but it was definitely worth it. :-) I just wish I could have been there when they got it.

In the future, you'll be able to buy in-the-box webcams that turn on as soon as the box is opened and will videotape expressions and e-mail a short movie back to you. :P

..... or, ya know, teleport you there to hand-deliver it.

Option number 1 could probably happen in the near future! How awesome would that be?

Of course, option number 2 would be much more awesome, and the last time I checked shl8594 (Saul, from RITPlayers) was working on it.
