So after I finished my anniversary piece, I picked up The Raven by Lavender Wings again. I started this on 10-31-10 as part of a SAL with the 123 message board group and once I got the birds stitched, I put it down to concentrate on My Family Sampler. Well, Halloween is fast approaching so I decided to pick it back up. The words took about a week to do, mostly because I have to remove my glasses to work on this piece - it's a bit small and I'm nearsighted (I can't see far away - is that nearsighted?) My goal is to complete this by 10-31-11 so I can start the new Raven piece by La D Da - since there is only a very simple boarder left to stitch, this should be no problem. I'm going to use the same material, so they will be companion pieces.
