My little goose is now finished and looking quite content swimming in a pond. I started the lighthouse last night but didn't work on it this morning.
I have been thinking about what I am going to do with my rug when finished. The designer of the rug, Anne Kirby, says that out of 40 completed rugs, she doesn't have one saved for herself. I understand completely as over the years, I have done many petite pointe/cross stitch projects and only have a couple to show for the years of work.
I think that years from now, there will be an important piece of me that will exist beyond my days. It takes 1-2 years to complete a petite pointe/cross stitch piece as I love detail and shading; the smaller the stitch, the more realistic it looks.
Back to this project, I do have some thoughts on the matter, and once it is completed, I will let my hOOklingS know where it goes.
