Yes, it's true. I have prevailed over the Beast! Not only is it finished, but framed as well.
My framer tends to finish these pieces in record time. (Maybe he feels a sense of urgency because he's 94!) Anyway, he works with his daughter, and she wasn't there when I went to pick this up. They have a new credit card reader, and he hadn't yet gotten the tutorial on how to operate it. So he just sent me on my way with the framed piece and said we could worry about the payment later! We did go back later that afternoon, with our checkbook this time, even though he said it wasn't necessary that we come back the same day. I hope he wouldn't do that with a new customer, although I wouldn't be surprised if he did--he's very nice. And they do know me well.
Here are some close-ups...
I didn't bother to change the date!

I mentioned a March small that was being pillowfied in my last post. Here it is...

My Lizzie-Kate Spring piece hasn't received much love, so I won't show that here, but I'm moving right along on the Easter piece.
Holiday Delights, Easter

I usually like to throw a blackwork piece into the mix, and this year I chose a PDF download from Ajisai Press...
Here is my start on the ladybug...
It's kind of scary looking, and way bigger than life-size.
It's like the ladybug that ate Cleveland!
So that's it from here.
Hope your February is going along well.
Thanks for visiting!
