As you can see from my past posts, I've been doing more cross stitching. Part of the reason is that I started following the Stitching Daze blog a year or so ago. She has so many projects underway with more kits coming in every day, that it inspired me to take my stitching out and work on it again. Plus it's a good project to do in the livingroom when Russell is home.
I started this one at the very end of January and it took about 2.5 weeks to finish, but only because I didn't work on it every day. I had it on Facebook less than a half hour when one of my friends asked if she could buy it!!
I know I featured this one before, but I finally got it framed. Painted a plain wood frame in light blue and added some of the blingy keys I made right before the Superbowl that were inspired by the Seahawks colours. I also had an old charm (with the old logo that contains a less angry-looking bird) so I put that on the frame too. Another thing....not one person noticed that in the original photo, I put the wrong Roman numerals for Superbowl 48. I had it as 47. Rather than rip the entire row out, I shimmied in the 'I' to make it XLVIII.
This was a free pattern that was shown in just regular red, but I decided to use my varigated red floss instead.
My friend Bev pinned this adorable owl design on Pinterest, so I made it in about 2 hours.
I made them both into cards.
So many projects! So little time!
