What is it that they say about good intentions? ;)
Well... right after Butterfly was finished, I stitched a small for my aunt. I used part of the Weeping Violet design by Sweetheart Tree and added a poem to it. It's nothing flashy but she loved it's simplicity and sweetness.
Since I'm redecorating our office, I decided to put some stitching up on what I call our "Welcome Wall." This is the first wall someone sees when they come into the office.
First, I stitched My Big Toe Design's Faith. I've been wanting to stitch this design for a few years, but never had a place for it. Now that I do, I decided to bead the top and bottom parts and stitch the words. The frame and mat were from Michael's which, on sale, came to a grand total of $7.50.

Once Faith was done, I decided to reframe the gift from Ana for a matching set.
Then, of course, once they were up on the wall, it just wouldn't do!!! The wall was too empty!! This of course let to another stitched piece. Framing cost: $5.00...

I'm now happy to report that, picky me is now quite happy with our Welcome Wall after I went shopping this morning for the orchid and sun-ball. :)
Oh!!! And here's a picture of the the front desk area. We don't have a receptionist yet, so it just sits there looking pretty (unless we're closing out a case). :D
