In the Beginning Finished!

I was determined to get this one finished up yesterday. I also finished listening to Twilight on my mp3 player. It was so good!! Now I have to listen to the next one. Anyway, here's some pics of my finish...

LHN "In the Beginning"

LHN "In the Beginning"
Little House Needleworks "In The Beginning"
Fabric: 36 ct. Flax Edinburgh Linen
Threads: DMC (1 over 2)
Started: 2/10/09 - Finished 3/19/09

I had one mistake - the top border is two stitches too close to the rest of the design. I don't know how that happened. I contemplated taking it out, but then decided not to. I don't think it's that noticeable. Today I think I'm going to work on my nephew's sampler. I'd like to get that finished too. Then I can get back my other samplers! Write later!

  10. Very pretty, and no one will ever notice the border. I haven't listened to a book on my MP3 player yet, but it's my most appreciated companion when I walk my miles.

  26. Contrats!! It looks really lovely and I so like the sun with it's little face. :) I wouldn't worry about the mistake, Nicole. If you hadn't said anything I wouldn't have noticed. Most of the top area of the design is further away from the border so it's no biggie.

  36. I would have never noticed the border size. You can adjust the size of your frame to it or use some fabric border before framing and that would be an alternative. I like it the way it is, very lovely.....
