My needlepoint piece completed...

however it wasn't completed by me! My super nice and super fast stitching friend Sherri completed it for me. I love it! This is a  Pat and Lee Design  (#131). I thought I would try my hand again at needlepoint, but alas I find that crossing the tiny x's is what makes me the happiest. If you needlepoint at all, I do envy you, because it's a fabulous talent to have.  I have warned close friends and family, that if I even hint at buying a needlepoint canvas that they have permission to bong me on the head! Trust me, I have been tempted, but this is not an inexpensive hobby to have (who I am kidding, x-stitch is just as bad) Sherri is just too talented and it really didn't take her very long at to complete. All of the lovely background, the hills, pathway are all her very own additions because the background was originally all white. Also, all the different stitches were her own idea as this piece had no stitch guide for it. 

I have been meaning to do this post for awhile to thank Sherri! Without her help, it would be a very expensive piece languishing in a drawer. Now to get it framed!  To tell you just how nice Sherri is, she is stitching the rest of my Isabelle Vautier African Women. You see the first two in this post. There are 3 more in the series. She has completed two almost. So watch this space for some more fabulous finishes!  Thanks so much Sherri! Words can't express how much I appreciate your stitching these pieces for me!
