It's finished and ready to mail off. Hurrah! A while back Suz posted about Leslie Ehrlich's Sandy Hook Memorial project, and I signed on. Don't know whether this fits the "requirements," but it is done and ahead of time no less. For the cross stitch, I used just the corner of a much larger pattern designed by Michelle Lash, a birth announcement actually, because the project was supposed to feature children's old-fashioned toys and primary colors. I immediately thought of teddy bears since they are often given out in situations requiring comfort. (In rereading the directions, however, after I was done, OF COURSE, I noticed that the heart was supposed to be CQ. Oh well, my CQ is on the background.) That little bear took way longer to stitch than the CQ part because of the close color changes. So there you go. That's what's been consuming a lot of my stitching time lately; I hope it'll be OK! Now, back to my UFOs!
