A Very Happy Dance Finish

My Fallen Roses is finished!!!  I was able to put the last stitches in it this morning and I only laid the frame on it so you can get an idea of how it will look.  I've taken it to the framer for mounting and when it's safely hanging on my wall, I'll take another picture of it.  We have a brick wall in our living room and it will be there hanging over the mantle.  I can't say I loved stitching this but the reason I stitched it was filled with love.  For those of you who are new to my blog, this was stitched in honor of my parents....Lottie Margaret Reinecker and Ray Andrew Heller and the date is the day they were married.  
Now unto something different and hopefully without blue in it.  If I never see 3750 again, I'll be more than happy.
Blessings as always,
Barbara
My sweet friend Thellie just sent me this very cute picture.  I do believe that Vallie has been leading a double life.  LOL  I think it's time I sat her down and had a little talk with her....but it just might be too late....sadly.

Well worth all that 3750! It's a beautiful tribute. As for Vallie, you have to admit she does look cute in her hopefully-by-now-former profession!

I am so impressed with your beautiful finish in honor of your parents. I know how hard this piece was for you to stitch sometimes. What a wonderful tribute to them. :0)

What a lovely honor - best of all, it's finished!

I agree - it IS a sickness! By the way, there's a Correction page at JCS for the missing chart in the Halloween issue here: http://www.just-crossstitch.com/Corrections.aspx

Oh, what a truly lovely piece, Barbara! DMC 3750 is my favorite color, but after all of those blue stitches, even I might not feel like stitching with it right away :)
