I have been working on my WIP for a long time now, and it's still not finished. However, I am pretty sure that it's 90% done. A few more episodes of Heroes, America's Next Top Model, CSI, Law & Order SVU, Stylista, Lipstick Jungle, Survivor, Law & Order, Fringe, Extreme Race and The Unit, it will be done in no time ;)
But I told a fellow PIFer that I will make her a cross-stitched bookmark of her name. It's been years since I made this project. I made a bunch of them as Christmas presents to my Japanese students a long time ago. So, I was pretty excited to do this one. What I like most about it is that it doesn't take long to finish, and it's personalized. I knew I could finish it in one sitting.
So last week, I started browsing my library of cross-stich alpha patterns. After picking the one I like, I started cross-stitching a couple of nights ago. I was half-way done when I realized that there wasn't enough cloth for the remaining letters. I was fuming mad!!!
So I had to do it all over again. I hate repeating a cross-stich project, especially when I already stitched most of it. But I didn't want to keep Amber waiting, so I made sure I finish it tonight so I can mail it to her tomorrow. And this is the final product.
The size is bigger than the usual-sized bookmark, but it will work. And Amber has an option to frame it if she wants. I hope she likes it :)
And I really hope I finish my current WIP soon.... so I can start a new one!
