This is what I've been working on for the past couple weeks or so - a wedding gift for my friend Dede who got married to Puvan last year. I know, it's a long overdue gift but the wedding was so unexpected that it completely caught me by surprise. What with Christmas and other stitching commitments already on my list, I didn't get around to this until recently. Now I need to get it framed up before presenting it to her. She knows that I'm making something for her but have no idea what it is. As this is the first time I'm giving a finish piece to someone other than my family members or my fiance, I'm pretty nervous about it. Really hope she will like it.
The pattern is a freebie I downloaded from the Internet. Can't remember which website it was from though. If I'm not mistaken, it's from a Russian website. At least, I'm guessing that it's Russian. I thought that it would be suitable as a wedding sampler after adding in the words. I must admit that I have my moments of apprehension since there are no backstitches in the entire pattern and I didn't know how clearly the picture would turn out. Luckily, my worries were for naught. It was a pretty fast stitch, considering and I truly enjoyed it. Will post another picture again once I get it back from the framers. Now I gotta get back to stitching another wedding sampler for a couple whose wedding is on the 25th of this month. Yikes!
