Weeping Tree

Another finish under the belt yesterday morning!!!!  It was impossible to actually sit in front of a computer for 15 straight minutes to post the news, and it is almost as impossible today-- but here goes :)
Weeping Willow by City Stitcher (OOP) on 40ct Lakeside Fawn.  A personal conversion to overdyes and here we are.  Isnt it gorgeous!!!!  I am thrilled that I decided to finish the piece with the sawtooth border.  I LOVE it.  The whole thing was great fun to stitch.   I know that a few of you have mentioned you have had this hanging in your home now for sometime, and couldnt be more pleased.  I share your excitement now!!!!!
I love the sheep :)  Stickin' cute!!
Another one for the framer.  I cant wait to see what the end result will be for this one!!!!
Next I am going to start the Amy Mitten class-- I was supposed to start it last night, but visited with 2 VERY CUTE girls and will have to start it tonight instead.  No worries, it was way worth playing with Rapunzel last night!!!

After Amy, I have in mind a very BAP :)

Have a fabulous day!!

    1. Thank you!! I am very pleased :) I choose not to post my conversions-- each time I convert a new project, it is done out of stash and along with using Limited Edition silks etc, etc. Colors will never look the same. Dye-lots are a tricky thing!! I can tell you the bricks are Gloriana Jacaranda. I encourage you to do your own conversion-- it is great fun and very rewarding!!! (And, it is not hard!!) Have a great day!!
