I am just excited so I must share. Quick sum up of the story so far: I finished the never ending cross stitch project (a wedding piece for my best friend who was married a year ago in April), took it to Needlewoman East to be framed, as was recommended here, the framers called me to be sure that I wanted the light yellow painted wood frame versus the gold frame. So I started second guessing myself but stuck with the yellow choice. I posted here about my indecision.

Well, today I picked up my newly framed finally totally ended cross stitch project. The light yellow frame looks great! Even the women at the shop said it looked good. Ah, I am relieved. My "unusual" tastes worked again.

Now, I am stopping by on Saturday while her mom is in town (my best friend's mom adores cross stitch and was very excited when I showed her what I was working on while we were planning Sally's shower) to give it to my best friend and her DH (thankfully, they are very happy together!). I only need a large enough wedding-ish gift bag. I have the endless supply of tissue paper, plus a sappy card. Well, its a blank card with a beautiful watercolor of flowers on the front and I will write the sappy stuff about the piece and its history and how much I adore the two of them and all the happiness and joy I want them to have, yada yada.

So yay, I'm almost full cycle with this. Just one last step to take and that's happening soon. :)
