Cross-stitch = Complete!

Dear Shayne,

Remember when I had cross-stitch fever in this post? And then I started my skull cross-stitch in this post and was worried about having the stamina to finish?

Well, guess what? I finished!
Cross-stitch skull

I'm so happy with this -- it was only 4 x 4 inches, but cross-stitch is even slower than knitting, so I'm proud that I stuck with it. Yay!

Now I have to figure out how to frame it. As I mentioned in my first cross-stitch post, I love what Bitter Betty has done with decoupaged embroidery hoops. I think that would look good -- now I need to find the perfect thing to use.

love,
kelly

PS -- This pattern is from Skull-A-Day and you can find it right here.

Hi! I found your blog through Flickr, and I really like it! I love the concept, and I'm adding you to my blogroll. ;)

Good job!!! I'd definitely go with a round frame...how about painting the hoop black?
