A UFO Fininshed!



This is alphabet soup sampler #1 by Brightneedle. I started it a year ago and until this past week had become an ufo. Why? because those diagonal boxes about drove me crazy! They really were easy-but for some reason I would end in the wrong hole or wood miscount my stitches. So, I was extremely frustrated with it. I am happy to be done with it however as it makes me feel less guilty about buying more stuff! LOL This will be framed and put in my bedroom eventually as some of colors in this peice match the colors in my room.

Today is also my blog anniversary, I started blogging one year ago today! I can't believe how fast a year has gone by. I have found so many wonderful stiticher's online. I have started new friendships, exchanges and seen such beautiful stitching-I can't tell you all how much enjoyment it has brought me. Thanks as always for your comments, your friendship and your time that you take to visit my blog.

Congraulations on finishing up a UFO. Alphabet Soup turned out lovely, but I can see where the boxes would have been a challenge.

Also, congratulations on your Blogiversary, I agree our stitching community is wonderful, it makes stitching so much more fun having people to share it with. Also, it is great to be able to see what everyone else is doing, especially if like me there aren't stitching groups near where you live.
