Christmas Gift Revealed!

So here it is, I cross-stitched an apron for my son's girlfriend.
I really like this pattern. The colors are beautiful. 
The hardest part was the stem stitch on the words. I really didn't enjoy working on that portion. I like the way it came out though.



Now I am looking forward to spending a whole bunch of time stitching all my other WIPs. First up will be finishing my mom's vest. I sewed on the button band yesterday. Now I have to knit the buttonhole band.
After that I really want to sandwich and quilt my table runner.

Thanks for stopping by!

Really lovely apron--I agree stem stitch can be frustratingly slow work! that bargello piece is really nice, too. Hugs, Julierose
