Last night, while watching the Olympics, I finished the border. I have a couple star burst to add to the bottom gold. I have to do a bird, a star, and backstitching yet. Next time maybe you will see it framed.

Love it mother! You did a great job and you are in the home stretch now. This needs a very pretty and elaborate frame now too. Do you know where you will hang it?

Love and hugs ~

Nancy, I love it. You have done such a wonderful job on this chart. People are not my favorite to stitch. I look forward to seeing it framed. It will be just beautiful.

It is wonderful and you are so close to finishing now! I like the Yorkshire Roses you decided to use, they go very well.

Very nice Nancy!!

I cannot, for some reason, sit and watch the Olympics...I guess If I had some sewing or something then I probably could..I have been crafting at the kitchen table while DH watches Turner Classic movies!

Hi Nancy,

Your Henry is first class and I know that it will be finally finished soon. I enjoy the back stitching for me that is when the picture really comes alive.

Warm hugs,

p.s. I do like the new hair colour althou I liked the blond as well.

It is beautiful, Nancy! I love your roses on it. I feel like being a snail when I see this ;)

Hugs, Carolien

It's amazing how fast you are on this project. It looks terrific - and nearly done.

I love both your hair colours but of course you should wear the one you feel best with.

Your stitching is gorgeous. I'm anxious to see it framed. And - occasionally Hubby asks me if I know what color my hair is.

Also, I just want you to know that I'm home. My e-mail address is if you want to "talk". If your e-mail bounces back, please let me know under my comments. I am having problems with my mail filters.
