Major Happy Dance

I finally finished Teresa Wentzler's Wool Cross Fruit Quartet! This was my oldest UFO and was started six years ago. "Wool cross" is cross stitch on penelope canvas using crewel weight Appleton wool. It was an interesting stitch and I love the finished piece, but I sooooooo glad I'm done!

When I first started, I imagined making it into a pillow. I've had all sorts of other ideas since then, so for now I'll just display it proudly as is.

Hi Sherri,
Congratulations! This is gorgeous, and there is no way I would make a cushion out of it, so people can sit on it!! I'd be hanging it in my kitchen, or framing it.
