I finished it up Friday evening.
I have never underestimated a piece as much as I did this one! I thought it would be done by Thanksgiving, Wrong! I thought it would be done by Christmas. Wrong! I thought I would finish it up in the days just after Christmas. Wrong. I thought for sure, it would be finished in January. Wrong!
Well I am glad it is finally done!
Here is a picture of my husband holding it up.

I have no idea when I will get around to framing this one, so for now it will have to go into the box.
I want to thank all of you for your words of encouragement on this one! I appreciated every one of them!
I needed a change of pace for my next project. I chose The Tulip Patch from Barrack Samplers. I love the Arts and Crafts styling of it, and, and very importantly, it has no grass in it! None at all!
I am stitching it on 40 count cream linen. I was disappointed that I could not find the called for, Antique Cotton in 40ct. This will have to do. I am afraid it might look too whitish in the cream, but what can you do? I am stitching it with Needlepoint Silks.
I made a small start:
I also started knitting a sweater. It has been decades since I knitted anything, so I wanted to start with something very simple. I chose the Neckdown Cardigan from Knitting Pure & Simple.
It got good reviews on Ravelry, so I decided to give it a try. I am knitting with Bartlett yarns from Maine. I haven't gotten very far yet, but this is where I am:
Hopefully it will look like a sweater when it is done! It's been a long time. Hope I get it right!
Happy stitching everyone!
