All Tied Up

Yesterday, I looked at this piece and thought, "I can finish it tomorrow if I work on it exclusively." So I did just that, and instead of finishing it today, I finished it last night. We were going to put the years (they've been married 50 in April), but when we put it up in the mats, there just wasn't room for them below the names. I hope the in-laws like this. It's not my best stitching because well - I wasn't emotionally engaged in the project. Nothing new to learn, nothing exciting to do in it.

It's beautiful! Congrats on getting it finished, despite the lack of emotional attachment.

Thanks, Lani!

I agree with Lani, its beautiful. You may be able to fit the years in two lower or upper corners if the font size was small. Just a thought. Marion

I feel the same way about some projects. I want a bit of a challenge in my stitching!

That said, this piece came out beautifully! I hope it's appreciated!

Not emotionally engaged because there was nothing new to learn or do or because you don't like your in-laws? The excitement is in doing something for your husband's parents, I'd imagine. I'm sure he's quietly pleased. I think it's beautiful!

Both. I barely speak to my in laws for a variety of reasons. So there wasn't even the blessing of giving it to someone I liked!

And thank you all for the compliments.
