Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, Wisconsin
designed by Brigitte Kozma
from the January-February 1988 Just CrossStitch magazine
stitched on 28 ct antique white Aida with DMC floss
I can hardly believe it!! This afternoon I put the final backstitches on the lighthouse for my SIL Jane. Had I known how difficult it is to read some of these old patterns I would have never offered to stitch it for her. However - I did offer and as you can see I did stitch it. The result (nicer IRL than on the picture) is a piece that will look very nice in their lighthouse decorated cottage. This project took me just over a year to complete as it was started on July 15, 2009.
Although the magazine has several other lovely designs there is no way I am considering starting any of them for the moment. The magazine is going back to the archives. :-)
Hope to be back soon to show you some of the other projects I have been working on. For today this is enough. Finished - I'm so happy!!!
