A Stitcher's Stitchings

Oh, for the love of cross stitching….and a few ramblings

Before I forget…. May 12, 2012

I just wanted to add this small tidbit before I forget to. I ordered my scroll frame and 2 patterns from downsunshinelane.com and I must say they are a great company to order from. My 2 patterns were a total of $18 (one was $6 and one was $12) and that is a pretty good price from what I have seen. They are beautiful and I can’t wait to start working on them.

I also received an email when they were going to ship my package but wasn’t able to track it. That’s why I was so suprised when they arrived in 2 days, and I live in TX so I usually have to pay for quicker shipping if I want something that quick because there aren’t that many companies that close to where I live that can get it here that soon.

They are the ones who packaged the parcel that I had to tear into but it made me feel confident that there was no way that someone else was going to be getting into my package. Hehe. This is the first time that I’ve ordered from the company and I have to admit that it was one of the greatest first experiences I’ve had with a company.

If you haven’t looked into them I’d say it’s worth checking out. They have great sales that I usually check out whenever I can. Sorry for the rambling but I just wanted to get that out there. Lol.

I’ve finally finished it!! This is my Friday update but I purposefully waited until Saturday to post it because around 11:45ish last night I was working on the finishing touches (the outlining and such) so I didn’t want to post it until  I completed it. I’m uber excited to get it framed for my daughter!! She hasn’t seen it yet but she’s so impatient that I’m not sure I can hide it from her until we get a frame. Lol.

I really am quite proud of this piece because it’s the first piece that I completed and it’s a bit larger than I thought it would be. I’ve been working on it for a while but it’s finally done and all the work was so worth it.

 

*I am a bit disappointed though because somehow I mess up on the fingers and while it might not be that noticeable it’s the first thing that I always see.  😦    However, I did choose to not outline the eye because I think it pops a bit more without being outlined because it’s like a pop of black and brown.

I’ll post pics again after I find a frame to get it in. For right now I’m going to start on another kit and hope to get it done before Thursday because that’s when my other scroll frame is supposed to arrive!!
