A couple of years ago, while visiting friends (there seems to be a theme here), I decided that I was determined to start stitching again. While I seem to have very little time between social activities and other hobbies, I did miss stitching, and I still have a large portion of my stitching "stuff"
Nora Corbett had a "Letters from Nora" alphabet releasing in parts and the "S" (for Samantha, though I call her Wendy) came out, and I was so happy. I was worried that I would hate the S fairy, because I really liked some of the letters, and other not-so-much, but she was adorable, the S was adorable, and I really liked the colors.
And it took me 2 years to stitch... hey, a lot was going on!
So when I went on my trip, and I knew that I was going to get something framed, this was, without a doubt, the first piece that popped into my head. And I'm really pleased with the results. She's super pretty, and I already knew where to put her in my home.

So yes, I'm so glad that this framing is everything I hoped it would be. The framer wouldn't let me have my antiquey silver frame like I wanted, but I like his choice better (I'm sure he WOULD have, but I really like what he suggested). I can't wait to see the mermaid alphabet's version of S as well, since it's such a fun letter.
