Mickey’s Carousel

My Early Works (1)

Another day, another missed delivery opportunity. Sadly, there has been no change to my shipment delivery.  Still floating in the world of customs.  *sigh*

In a quest to keep content running on this blog, I came up with the brilliant idea of posting some of my earlier works, which was mostly Disney related.

The first project I’m featuring is Mickey’s Carousel.  I stitched this project for my own children.  I think it’s adorable.  I framed it myself complete with my attempt at lacing the back.  I didn’t like the way it was sitting.  I don’t think I pulled it tight enough, so I took my glass and frame and had it professionally mounted.

The frame wasn’t the greatest of frames.  It was a simple black, plastic-type frame. It was nothing like the quality I use now.   In hindsight that was a good thing, because it somehow fell off the wall shattering the glass and breaking the frame.  I never got it re-framed.

Now it sits in my cross-stitch box–folded and pitiful.  I’m debating selling this.  My kids are too old for this now.

Unfortunately, the last photo’s a bit blurry, but you get the idea.  I think I was getting better at cross-stitching at this point.  The project looks pretty clean to me.

    • I was tiding up my box after having pulled everything out for the blog, and I decided that I was going to keep it. It’s too cute to pull away, and I’m regretting getting rid of the others. If memory serves correctly, I think I gave some to my friend Tina, who loves my cross-stitch projects. I’ll have to send her an email to find out for sure.
