Needlepoint Project Completed!



Hello everyone, boy am I excited today!!! Do you remember the needlepoint piece I was working on for my antique slipper bench? If you want to read more about it please click here .
It took me 3 months to complete it and then it spent a month at the Upholsterer's Shop.
But wait, before I show you what it looks like now, I think we need that before picture...


Here is the piece when I first started working on it...
                                
And here it is finished and on the bench!!! So exciting!



Well this is it for this post! Thankyou so much for taking the time to visit.
 If you are one of the many who will be affected by Hurricane Isaac, just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God's mighty hand protect each one of you. And blogger friends, let's keep them in our prayers. Until next time...

  1. That is so beautiful, Gina! I LOVE it! Great job! Thanks for your prayers. We are supposed to be in Isaac's path though it's still pretty calm except for occasional winds....Christine

  2. Gina, what a transformation! This piece will make quite a statement in your bed chamber.

    Thanks for visiting and leaving the sweet comment on my Labor Day postcards. I did see these same cards at a postcard show another time. Some postcard dealer in your area will have them at some point.

    Have a great holiday weekend.
