The Backside

Well, this is it! I have put in my final stitches! I've been working on this baby for so long, its a little hard to believe that I'm finally done. After-project shock, big time.

I'm not quite ready to show the final photo yet, but I thought you might like to see the unpressed, unframed backside of His Eye is on the Sparrow. And my toes, for size perspective!
This lovely lady is my 100th distributed design, set to be released by Norden Crafts on August 16th in St. Charles, and will simultaneously be available in my etsy shop for those of you who want to purchase directly from me. Put in your requests to your needlework shop owners now, and tell them to hurry over to Norden if they want to get their hands on some patterns early on. They will only have 100 copies there, so everyone else will have to wait for snail mail and secondary orders.

Whew! But the life of a needlework designer is never boring... I've already started stitching on a Christmas design for release in September.

I am in awe...this is an amazing accomplishment. I think this is the first time I have seen an needlewoman display the BACK of her work...sooo neat, too! My grandmother taught me about the needle arts and INSISTED that the back be as meticulous as the front.
