This is what I have been working on:
It is a wedding gift. I am planning on having it framed, which is where the cost of this project is involved. I've had the pattern forever, and the thread was less than $3. Of course, it involved a little time, but it was so much fun to watch the letters grow and it gave me something to do in the evenings!
I have been happy with Hobby Lobby's framing service for two other things I've done, so I'll probably stick with them. Now I just have to decide on a background mat color. It needs to be dark, and I want it to be a color that won't look "dated" in a few years. Any thoughts?
Now I'd like to do one of these for myself, but in looking around my living room and dining room, we really don't have a good spot to hang it. So I'm thinking of doing one that says "L-O-V-E" and putting in in the bedroom. Maybe. Or maybe I'm done with filet crochet for a little while. LOL
