First Finish of 2014!!!

Hello Friends!!! 

I am very happy to report my first finish of the year! See, it WILL be a year of finishes for me! 

Very early Wednesday morning, I finished the WWS Tribal Penguin! And I really think it came out great! All that I have left to do is iron and frame it, but first I must find the perfect frame. I think a white frame will make it really pop. It would be awesome if I could find a frame that looks like ice or ice cubes or something like that. But I haven't ever seen a frame like that, so I'm sure I will use a white frame. Then in April, I'll be entering my Penguin into the county fair! I'm super excited about it! 

Here is my finished Penguin!

After a few hours of sleep, I started on a project that I have been wanting to do for a very long time and I decided that now is that time. I am stitching the Monopoly Game Board! I only worked on it this past Wednesday so far. So I haven't gotten very far yet. For the border of the game board, I decided to stitch it in DMC 550 purple to make it a little bit personalized, since purple is my favorite color. After I finish stitching the game board, I am going to build a table and put the stitched game board on top and then apply a thick poly coating on top so it will be my permanent Monopoly table. It's going to be awesome!

So here is what the Monopoly Game Board will look like ...

I am really excited about this project and can't wait to see it finished! 

That's all that I have for now. Happy Stitching and Crafting! 

Until Next Time,

That monopoly cross-stitch looks like a lot of fun. I may have to see if i can find a copy of the pattern as well :)

Currently I am doing the Elemental Cosmos pattern you blogged about a few years back.

Your works look really amazing :)

Thank you so much! :) The Monopoly Game Board is fun to stitch and I'll be posting an update here in just a little bit :)

Oh how fun that you are working on Elemental Cosmos! :) Are you stitching it on black? I still have mine in the works and hope to get back to it this year.

Thank you again! :)
