Finished!!!

My piggy family....

I finally finished my Joan Elliot "Mom Loves You" piece! Was suppose to have "report" it earlier but some how notice last minute mistakes. So had to frog and restitch on some areas... The froging done was not an enjoyable time for me. The same goes for making french knots and back stitching.... Now I can understand why some people just don't like backstitching and some would rather use a bead to replace the french knot!

Wonderfully crips on top!

So now that's finally finished, I'm going to get a frame for it! So to "celebrate", I've made my own lasagne.... Yes, yes. Me and food never go far apart! The time spent cutting and chopping the vegies and meat, not to mention the time it took, was well worth it. Its the same with stitching. We spent long hours stitching and frogging (at times), in the end the result that we get is self satisfaction and pride with the piece we've long imagine even before its finished!! So to all the ladies (and gents) that really take pride and give your all in what ever you do, give yourselves a pat on the back and say well done!

Pat yourself on the back too Shanny, that's a wonderful finish and quite a bit of detailing. Well done indeed!

And your lasagne...yummy!
