You do beautiful work. I especially like the anniversary piece. Do you remember who made the kit?

Certainly! I bought the kit here: http://www.craftyneedle.com/prod.itml/icOid/5275

I started the anniversary piece on Christmas Eve last year and finished Feb 21... it was rather a quick stitch with only 3 colors and a very large and simple design. The Patriotic Angel is small (5"X7") and I started her in 2006 sometime and only finished her this March. About halfway through I sat her down in a drawer and promptly forgot about her though. I think in all actuality it was maybe only 3 weeks or so of work.

Thanks for the link to the kit. This is an elegant piece and you did superb work on the stitiching. Excellent choice on the mats and frame too.

Beautiful Anniversary Gift!  I can understand why she cried so much.  Those verses are very special to me and mine, they are engraved in our wedding bands.  I would have cried too!

Stunning! The Ani l'Dodi piece is just beautiful, I've wisted! I wish you were my daughter in law Wink (no wonder she cried!)

I may have to learn cross stitch, I keep coming across stunning Jewish cross-stitched pieces and itching to own them...

Awww, that was such a nice thing to do for your in-laws!  Don't you just love it when somebody cries over something you made them?!  I have a particular fondness for the "ani l'dodi" phrase because my husband and I both have the Hebrew of it tattooed on us.  And we're not Jewish either, haha Grin.

Thanks so much guys!! I'm quite proud of it. Not only was it my first finish in a long time (about 5 years... I have a lot of UFOs... Roll Eyes ) but it's the first where I made absolutely sure that every stitch was perfect. Normally, I just wallow on and "adjust" the pattern as I go to gloss over my mistake. I guess because it was a gift, my perfectionist side made itself known.  Grin  I'm extremely happy with it and happier still that they loved it and it's now proudly displayed in their home.

That's gorgeous!

I have to ask tho <-- clueless

Is this like a wellknown symbol so that even non-Jewish people would enjoy?  Did the request this or is this just something a lot of pple like? Smiley  I'm sorry I just haven't ever seen this imagery or heard of the phrase Wink  thanks!

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.
