Hello my lovelies! I just came home from a weekend away at a LAN party - which was tons of fun, but the third weekend in a row that we were either traveling or had visitors, so I am really looking forward to some peace and quiet now. That, and lots of stitching time!
Either way, this month for FFG (hosted by the most wonderful Rachel), I have...maybe half of a fully finished object? A re-finished object!
I'm not sure if I ever showed it on here, but one of the first stitches I did after re-discovering cross stitch in my twenties was these sun bathing turtles, a kit by Elsa Williams. I stitched them as a gift for my grandma and framed them the best I knew how at the time:
As you can see, it's creased and crooked and just doesn't look all that good overall. So I've been meaning to redo it for a while now, and finally got around to it!
I kept the frame, but bought a custom made mat to add, and I took the whole thing apart to iron and properly center. Much better now, don't you think?
So even if it's a little cheated, this is my finish for the month - I can almost promise you a proper one for July, though, so stay tuned!
