Here it is:


The completed 'Welcome' which went down very well with the bride and groom when I gave it to them just a short while ago.=) Looks much better complete than it did in progress and, it's true that you're often your own worst critic, so..... Still wish the lettering had been more even, but you can't have it all ways. They liked it and that's the main thing, right?

Here's the latest status on the bookmarks:

Hi Elisabeth!
Your lilly is a wonder, and I'm fond of your bookmarks...
You have set your goals for April, it all sounds great and I'm looking forward to seeing it all. I haven't and won't: just can't stick to any set goal; sometimes I wonder if it's not on unconscious purpose...
Take care!
Lili

Oh gosh, your needlework leaves me for dead, Elisabeth - it is absolutely sensational! Thank you so much for your comment on Patra's Place about the apron I was asking about. I suspected the stitching of the parrot was as you described, but until you commented, I couldn't figure out how it was done.

It is beautiful! I can't see how the lettering could be more even as it seems perfect to me!

The bookmarks are looking fabulous too!
