A Paris Kiss - finished!
Hurray, hurray! I finished it with two days to spare! I'm taking it to the framer tonight. Yippee! I'm so relieved! No more brown sepia colors for awhile. I want color! The first pic above is from my cell phone, and the second one is from the scanner. I also have a picture from my camera, but I have a problem with transferring the pics from the camera to the computer.
"A Paris Kiss"
Started 1/6/2011, Finished 8/17/2011
I bought this kit from The Stitchery catalog. It was imported from Belgium. This was my first time stitching on linen (28 ct stitched over 2) and I loved it!
It was based on this painting by Migdalia Arellano:
I'm so glad that you followed me along in my progress on this! Now my next deadline is August 31, my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. I am about one-third done with their cross stitch gift. I am also stitching squares for quilts for World of Charity Stitching. Those pretty little items cheer me up because they are quick to do and I know they will make someone happy!
