Another one drops Anchor

I finished up the last bit of stitching this morning. As I usually do, I made a few changes to this piece to make it my own. The hardest change was re-doing the lettering. Not a hard thing to do really, just a little time consuming. Because the whole thing reminded me of my sons sailing away on their life's journey, I put their names in it. I also changed a few colors - the house went from black to blue - not a significant change but one I liked. I also changed the last line of the verse. Rather than, "Come back again to me" I had it say "Come sailing home to me". Again, not a significant change but one I liked. I also decided, for the first time ever, not to put the buttons and charms on this one. I love it just they way it is.

I hope all of you that have been stitching with us will continue to post your progress pictures. No matter how miniscule your progress may seem to you, we're here to cheer you on! And of course, when you finally dock for the last time, be sure and post that, too!


Peace,
Terri

  2. Terri, it's just lovely. I love how you personalized it - so many little changes to make it uniquely your own piece. You definitely have an eye for color and detail.

    I so enjoyed being a passenger on this lovely cruise that you an Lorraine organized.

  3. Terri it looks really great... I love your changes.

    I'm still plodding along. I have exchanges due so I had to set this piece aside until they are finished up. I have the house and hill done so I'm close! Thank you so much for organizing this SAL with Lorraine!

  4. Great finish Terri it looks wonderful.
    I also changed my lettering. It is going to make mine longer I just hope I have enough material. I did take some of the filling stitches out. The Vanilla Pudding ones up at the top. Hope it doesn't change the look too much.
    Yours is so pretty I know you are glad it is done.
    Again congrats ~!
    God Bless ~
