Framed and Eagle Progress



I had this Lizzy Kate piece done and finally framed it for Marissa. She is in her new apartment and this would be a little reminder of how special she is to me. (I already made this for Kristen and Colleen but hadn't done one for Marissa.) Now I can add this to the box with the rest of her birthday surprises.



I decided that cross stitching is a lot like working a jig saw puzzle. The picture comes into focus piece by piece just as you work stitch by stitch. This is the week's progress on my eagle. I love seeing the eagle take shape the more I work on it.

They're gorgeous. It's fun watching them come to life. I can't wait to see more and more of the Eagle.
