I completed my project for my MIL! I also did another small cross-stitch piece but I forgot to take a picture of it before I wrapped it up for my friend for Christmas. It's not mailed off and I have half a mind to open it and take a picture, then rewrap it. That may be a lot of work for such a tiny piece, but it was a cute little piece!
I finished it up and it took it out of the hoop and put it in the frame. This is me holding the finished product.
I put the frame down on the desk and stepped back to take another picture.
After that it was time to wrap the frame in layers of bubble wrap and then put it into a bubble wrap envelope. The birthday present is quite late.
As you can see, I have stars over the address of both my MIL and myself. Before I could put this into the mail, my MIL became very ill and was hospitalized. They didn't know if she would make it, so it was very important to me to take that to her when we went to the hospital. I gave it to her and she loved it. I think it meant a lot, I hope it did. Now if only my fingers and wrists would quit acting up then I could get some more projects done...
