I LOVE the crocheted border!!! I seriously might be employing this technique on the hoop I'm working on now. I'm in love with the colors you use and I really like how you used French knots for the last word. Flawless, as usual.
This weekend has been full of UGH. I scrapped my original design and re-hooped last night. I was not happy with how things were turning out. But happily, the new hoop is coming along really great! I'm off today and tomorrow I have a super down day at work so I can take it with me and stitch there. I definitely expect to still ship the 15th
