Another UFO...DONE

I'm in some kind of crazy alternate universe...I've finished another piece!  Well, I don't deserve to much praise for this.  It was all but done...I just had to make a correction.  This piece is a freebie from Brooke I started many moons ago.  It was the first piece I'd ever done on a fabric other than 14ct Aida or perforated paper.  When I finished this project years ago I realized that the right vine was seriously off count and over about 4 more spaces then it should have been.  I found this today and decided it was the day to fix it.  I frogged out the vine and restitched it.  I found several little miscounts in this you can see my 1999 isn't centered =)  I've decided not to go crazy and to let it be what it is...not perfect.  It represents a beginning.  So I'm going to find a frame and hang it proudly.  I really do love this design!

I just finished Bent Creek's Big Round Zipper!  I am so excited I actually took a picture and voila here you go!  My first finish for 2011.  Now I'm off to make some felt food for the kids' kitchen...pancakes I believe!
