Haiti Quote Custom Stitch: Finished!

I put some more hours in to this custom stitch over the weekend and got it finished for work again on Monday.

Somewhere along the line I must have miscounted a stitch because one part didn’t match up to the pattern I made, but everything still seemed to fit just fine.  I’m chalking it up to luck that it all worked out without me having to rip up a bunch of work and redo it.

The lettering was a little tricky – mainly because I’ve not worked with this size Aida cloth (22) on such a large-scale project before.  The only work with this count cloth I’ve done was for buttons for a fundraiser.  But this piece will fit in a 4×6 frame.

But I really love the way it turned out!  I’m not sure what the phrase means – I do know it’s Haitian Creole, requested by the customer.  This will also end up as a gift to someone else, so I hope it’s enjoyed!

But this was the last cross stitch project I had lined up.  Now that it’s finished, I need to figure out what I’m going to work on next.  I have some ideas, but you’ll have to stay tuned to see what’s in store!
