Ohhhhhh so close to a finish

I haven’t posted in over a week.  I even missed my regular Sunday Stash and Monday Design Wall posts.  Yikes.

Today I’m showing you a progress picture of my Snow Garden stitching.  It’s oohhhhhh so close to being done…and next time you see it…it will be!

{oh, I couldn’t decide which of these pictures I liked better…so I’m including them both}

I need to finish up that peacock and then finish the personalization and it will be done!  I think that this will be the first cross-stitch finish that I’ll have to add to the list since 2009!

Sad news today.  Lisa of The Primitive Needle passed away today.  Definitely a loss to the stitching community.  Click {here} for her blog and {here} for her website.  I know that these days most of my readers are quilters and may not know of Lisa or her designs, but she was an extremely talented woman, and obviously loved by her family.  My prayers go to her husband and children during what must be an amazingly difficult time.
