Crunch time, folks... baby Rowan has arrived! As much as I'd hoped to be done before he was born, I'm happy with the amount I've gotten done with all the craziness that's been going on. I'm on the home stretch with this sampler now and I'm hoping to have it done in the next few days.
This picture was taken last night around 9pm -- everything complete but the backstitching!
I decided to lose a little bit of sleep working on the backstitching while catching up on my overloaded DVR. Before I finally called it quits for the night, I snapped this picture:
I love how the backstitching really makes the letters stand out. I'm going to finish the letters and the circles first, then move on to the animals themselves. The very last thing will be adding Rowan's information to the bottom and then it will be complete!
The entry date for the county fair is October 14th (I believe) so I should have no problem being done in time. While the "prize money" isn't that great for anything entered, it would still be nice to win!
