Finally I finished my Daughter's Sweet Sixteen Gift.
This pattern was in Cross stitch Crazy May 2008 Issue.
When I first saw the pattern if reminded me of my
daughter Alyssa. In the magazine they said you
can finish this in a weekend, they called it a weekender
project - NOT. Maybe if you started friday morning
and stopped sunday night without stopping at all. I
want to see someone do this in a weekend :)
The colors were hard to work with. I am very pleased
that it is done and with be taking it to the framer. My
daughter Plays the clarinet and also guitar, she is a free
spirit. She did not want a party so we went on friday
and bought her what she wanted, a new MAC laptop
computer and printer. My daughters like apple
computers. Her birthday is not until June 23rd,
but with the extra paycheck week in april I
purchased it when I had the money. I will
be taking her out to dinner and
also giving her this piece. Something she will
have forever. It's my 13 finish. Thank you to
everyone who leaves a comment on the blog.
I truly look forward to see what everyone has to
say. It make my day knowing I can share my
work with other stitchers.
