Resurrection



I finished this cross stitch piece last night. It's called Resurrection, designed by Cross Stitch Art. I stitched it for my brother and his wife. I designed and added the letters and date. Now to frame it! This is the first time I've missed the deadline on a wedding piece, but they *did* announce they were finally getting married and then do it in about 3 weeks time. They should have it by their one month anniversary. I stitched on this so much before the wedding that I poked a hole in the side of my middle finger from pushing the needle. So. after the wedding, I took a little break to heal and finished it.



Here's a new picture of the Arrrgyle socks, on my husband's feet. See? There really are two. Socks. And feet.



And, because they're always a crowd-pleaser, another kitten picture. They're posing with M's new book. The boy (black and white) is definitely a Bandit, even though that started out as a joke name. We have to shut him in the basement while we eat. Even the good ol' spray bottle doesn't deter him. He loves the water. Olive is less demanding, very sweet.

Wow Lara, that's even more gorgeous than I had anticipated. Who is the designer? I think I may have to add that one to my stash.

What a great gift! Those socks rock. I love that the picture was (of course) of them worn.

Niiiiiice kitties.

Beautiful piece!! I still have my wedding cross stitch my cousin made - we just picked the date stitching out of it. ;)
Kitties are adorable. Sounds like Bandit is as psychotic as our kitten. I just started squirting her today to keep her from scratching and climbing the couch.

You did a lovely job on the cross stitch piece! I can knit all day, but I never have the patience for those! You do such nice work Lara, I'm sure they'll love it!
