I've finished up the needlework that I've been working on. When I broke out my tin of supplies to work on Super D's face, I found several pieces of needlework that I had started but not finished. So...it was high time I completed them.
Several years ago, I made what I call "Primitive Family Portraits". They aren't everyone's style, but ... they do have a bit of uniqueness to them.
This one is for my sister Annie. I just finished it.
This one is for my sister Lea. I finished it yesterday.
I also have one for my sister Marie. It was previously finished and in the tin. The one for my sister Dea was given to her a couple of years ago. Mine is the first one I made and it hangs on my bedroom wall. I also need to frame the one I made of all my sisters and brother. That will also go in my room.
Some of these will be given as Christmas presents after I frame them. Speaking of frames, I had Big Daddy take me to the dollar store today so I could buy frames (and a lot of other stuff too...geez...I cannot be turned loose in that store...as I just love it!) Tomorrow, in between cooking, I will have Big C help me frame these up and get them wrapped. Saturday is our annual Wine Family Christmas and one set of family members live a long way away, so their gifts have to be handed out then as I won't see them again until after Christmas. This also means that I need to make a couple of more hackey sacks asap. Good thing they are easy to make.
