thanks so much for all the kind birthday wishes this weekend! it was a very relaxing weekend, and i got to stitch, which always makes for a good time!
i used fancy fur and satin stitched for his hat and cuffs. the fibers might be really annoying when trying to stitch background behind them, but i love the effect!
his beard came next, and i had to put it down for a few days before i decided to just move forward with the alternating french knots using tulips. meh.
somebody decided to be cheeky with his extra passport picture, so imagine my surprise when i came downstairs to this over the weekend! <3
et voila! background in place, and after a little beading session during sunday night football, we have a finish! i admit i was anxious to get this to the finish pile, because i am really excited about my next project on deck and can't wait to start!
