Progress on The Raven

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.

My Sunshine

La D Da is another one of my favorite designers, and here is my latest finish!

This will be an anniversary gift for my husband this year.  We sing this to each other all the time!
