Found A WIP To Work On

I found a WIP that I started earlier this year. It is an M Designs Letter J (our last initial.) I became intrigued several years ago by a posting by Lynn on 123stitch where she had stitched her and her husband's initials and vertically framed them all together with seperate cutouts in a mat. It was stunning. It is one of those design ideas that has stayed with me.

I am stitching this J, 1 over 1, on 28 count cashel linen. I made sure that I have enough for all three initials in advance. I am stitching it with Thread Gatherer Charcoal Silk floss that. I had everything I needed in my stash, so it was almost like stitching for free. LOL

I really like stitching these little initials. They are intricate, but the pattern is easy to read. This should go quickly. I am afraid that I will not really be able to stitch the other two intials until after the first of the year but that is okay.

I am still getting used to seeing my angels on my previously blank wall. I can see them down my hallway from my bedroom. There is something so comforting about seeing them there. I have always loved angels, and what inspired me to stitch L&L angels is that they look exactly like what I imagine angels look like. So I so enjoy seeing them. I can not pick out a favorite. I love all of them. I just can not believe that I get to look at them every single day now!
