Better late than never

Tonight I managed to finish a long overdue UFO. It makes me happy to finish, as it's my nephew's birth sampler. And it took almost 4 years to finish, because there was a LOT of stitching with DMC B5200 on a white Monaco background. And there was a LOT of it. Endless white on white stitching, which was not only boring as all get out, at times it was difficult to see and concentrate on. But, several days ago, I got this back out, bound and determined to finish it, and finish it I did! :D


Here is the end result:




Design: Pittsburgh Steelers birth sampler

Designer: Steelers logo by Nomis for the NFL (an OOP book). Lettering by Atelier Fleur de Luce

Fabric: 28 count white Monaco

Fibers: DMC in B5200, 310, 321, 796, and 973







Well, I'm off for now. Gotta get another UFO out to stitch on. No rest for the wicked, yea? LOL! Hope everyone is having a great week. :)
