Stitching is Done!

I am so excited that all the stitching is complete on Holly!  Late last night I put in the last stitch.  Now I need to add all her beads!  I can't express how excited I am just to have all the stitches done.  Here she is!

I need to wash and dry her before I add the beads.  In some places the white threads look a bit dirty, and that would be a bad thing once she is framed.  I hope to have all the beads done next week and then I can start my next project, Autumn Queen also by Mirabilia.

I started selling cross stitch supplies online; and I must admit I am really enjoying it.  Right now, all of my customers/friends contact me via Facebook.  But hopefully I can get a website up and running soon.  Wish me luck!

On a personal note: Tomorrow is my 4th wedding anniversary.  I am so happy to have spent the last four years married to a wonderful man.  We may not always get along, but we always figure it out.  We will be getting away for our annual B&B stay and Wine Tasting Tour around the Texas Hill Country.  This year, friends of ours, newlyweds themselves, will be joining us on the Wine Tour.  I am excited!

I hope everyone has a great week/weekend.
