DT Gameboard FINISH


It's done. Not just done, but completely done and ironed and it feels and looks so good. I charted our house for the bottom right square and put a US flag in the square where initials and date go (since it already has my initials and date in the border). I also included my son's name and birthdate in the square with the crown since this is his Christmas gift. (His older sister's name is Sarah which means Princess, so he was our little prince). This feels like quite an accomplishment as I started it last August, and only seriously started working at it January 1 when I joined a SAL blog group and later a SAL yahoogroup that kept me going. (THANKS TO ALL OF YOU). I have to admit that I learned a lot of things about myself while stitching this, and one of them was that I really don't like stitching the same thing over and over and over and those houses were almost the death of me. Next up is something a little more "heavenly" called "And They Sinned" (EFTH) which I expect will hold my interest a little better if it doesn't completely kill me after a year.
WELL HAPPY MONDAY MORNING TO ME....I just realized the FLAG is UPSIDE DOWN!

Adana, pat yourself on the back, or let me do it for you. What a finish, its lovely, looks absolutely perfect and I know there is a son out there that will be in heaven come Christmas time, if you can wait that long. How fabulous. I hope you are proud of what you have wrought. Good for you, gf. Love the little changes you made, too.

I wandered over here from a comment that Linn Skinner made on her blog about your Henry's Queen's sampler. It's gorgous. I love this checker-board. Did you have a chart for it? I think it would be a cool project to stitch!
