I have worked on this piece since 2000. I was never over thrilled with stitching horses, however, this is what this couple wanted for their wedding sampler.
Okie Dokey!! I did it!!
However, originally I put their names in with "and" instead of symbol "&" and the bride quite bluntly told me she hated this!! I was on verge of telling her congratulations and let me be the first to gift you your first dust rag!! But, nope I said I would try it again. I truly wanted no part of this and dragged my feet on it by burying it at bottom of my "Stitching Sanctuary". Well, I am hard at de-stashing daily and I hit "bottom" and guess what was now on top!! Once last try, love it or dust with it Cindy!!
I had to put the names and date on it "again". Thus, I began this task on Friday evening. I always end up falling asleep each evening in my "stitching nest" and once again I did. I have, or now say I HAD, a bad Coke Cola habit. I evidently opened a Coke and fell asleep with the Coke finding it's resting place right on top of my fabric!! I received a blooming miracle upon finding not one drop of Coke had got on my fabric!!
This evening I finally finished this monster piece and it is being placed in tissue paper until Cindy and Pat's arrival on Thanksgiving evening. And, then it is OUT OF HERE!!
I am in great hopes it looks good, but at this point I do not think I care!!
Love and Hugs!!
