I finished my stitchery.....


I don't know why it takes me so long to finish something but it does. I really wanted to finish this $2.00 Wal-mart frame (yes, I ventured into Wal-mart....aaaggghhh) with the Dark Brown Bri-wax that other prim blogs have been talking about....just to try it out. It took me two weeks and three Ace Hardwares to find it but I did.



Well, I love the way it turned out. I changed the date to our anniversary year and added our intials and some buttons. I had a little trouble with the Bri-wax the first go round so I had to sand, paint and re-wax the frame again. I think I'm going to like it once I get the hang of it!

Blessings, Cathi
