Happy Dance!! Quaker "LOVE" FINISHED!

Hi, thank you always for your lovely comments, they make me smile and am motivated to stitching fast!
Finally my Quaker "LOVE" © Exampler Dames Design Co. finished!!
Once I re-started to stitch, I thought why I was so slow to complete this.



Here is a finished piece. I've changed a few colours to make more contrast.
DMC #833 --> #3829 and, #3772 --> #3778, #935 is used as chart calls for.


As I noticed that this is a piece for my mum's friend who presented for my son enters school.
This would be a gift for her in return, but I don't know whether she loves this or not, so am a bit worried if she would be happy or not...
We my mum and I agreed to decide what I stitch for her, so I think she likes this colour, hope she does!!


I added her initials and 2012, and also "T" and "Y" as a sign of our present.
I'm going to rinse this piece from now and will frame this for the beautiful frame which I've already ordered.
Thank you Grietje from Netherlands for letting me know how you rinse stitched pieces! :D
Hope it would be beautiful in the frame that I bought!!


Now the big typhoon is arriving to Japan and would hit our place tomorrow.
So Tass would be back home earlier than usual.
Hope no damage everywhere...

Take great care and have a lovely week ahead.
Bye for now,
((Hugs))

完成、おめでとう~Yuko!!
自分で色を変えて、いい感じに仕上がるととても嬉しいよね♪
黒(グレー?)が引きしめ役になって、甘いピンクも大人っぽいです☆

台風、すごいね~ こちらは明日 中学も小学も休校です…
4号が過ぎても またまた台風5号も来ているようで、
何事もないといいね…
ゆうちゃんも、気をつけて!!

Mayumiさんへ

これね、私も図案の写真を見た時は黒だと思って購入したの。
だけど、実際はグリーンなんです!
えっ?って思ったけれど、黒よりグリーンの方がプレゼントのお相手のイメージなので、ちょっと指定の色より濃いめのグリーンにしました。

昨日額装したよ!
結構いい具合です。

こちらは、昨日が休校でした。
市内で結構酷い被害が出ているので、びっくりしました。
けれど、本当にそれこそ「バケツを引っくり返したような雨」でした。

また五号が近づいているね。
こちらは明日は朝からしっかり雨らしいです。
またメールしますね!

Mayumiさんへ (2)

違いました、色を変えて濃いめにしたのは、金茶(?)とピンクでした。
グリーンは指定通りの#935です!

Yuko hi :-)
This piece is absolutely amazing. The colours are lovely and i am sure your friend will be thrilled to receive such a beautiful gift.
Will be thinking of you and Tass tomorrow and hoping the typhoon does not cause you any injuries. Keep safe.
