This little guy had been sitting in the "needing to be stitched" pile for a while!  Brought it with me and only took a couple of hours to finish up!

While visiting my aunt last month, we went through some of her unfinished needlework.  Her eyesight has gotten bad and she can't see to stitch any longer.  She has done some gorgeous work (crewel embroidery, needlepoint, smocking) over the years and she misses being able to do it now.  She started counted cross stitch about 30 years ago after a wreck that took her husband and injured her very badly.  Both of her hands and wrists were broken and she used the stitching for some physical and mental healing.  There were several cross stitch and silk ribbon embroidery pieces that have been started that she would like to have finished so I told her I'd try to finish them for her.  She will mail everything to me, but  I brought 2 of the tiny ones home to start.  The lighthouse is not my favorite color palette, so it may take a while... 

 The little Hardanger heart is nearly complete so I can get it off to her soon I hope!

Thanks for stopping by!
