First up, a progress report on "Texas Panorama":
The "A" is finished now (although still no backstitching) and I've begun the "E" (although no photo of that yet). This project has been on hold for a week or so as I've stitched up some Christmas ornaments to include with some gifts... at least I hope so! I have been pretty picky about choosing patterns and I might not get them finished at the rate I'm going.
I was originally planning on doing 3 or 4 of Teresa Wentzler's "Peacock Tapestry Ornament", but the first one took me long enough that I was pretty sure that I wouldn't be able to finish all of them in time. But I do have one! And I think I'm going to keep it for myself. :)
This is actually the first TW I've ever stitched, although I have several of her leaflets in my stash, along with most of the excellent freebies from her website. I love how it turned out, and it certainly won't be the last of her designs that I stitch! Now to figure out how to finish it... I'm leaning framing, even though I was really hoping to start trying some other finishing techniques. But I think this would look great in a frame (and on the wall in my office!).
