My first big cross-stitch project

I thought I'd post my first real project that I was proud of. (Recently finding it also helped me think of it. . .) It's not technically the first cross-stitch project I worked on. My mom, in her infinate wisdom "encouraged" me to begin with a few small ornaments. (I can't believe it's been 2 decades ago.) This is the first project that I had to do more prep work since the chart was just an alphabet and I had to graph the design out.
If you know of another girl named Beth who likes bears and purple, please let me know. I just joined a new group that sells homemade items and I'm thinking about selling this. I'd love to have this project go to someone who'd like it instead of just taking up space here.

My mom is the one who finished this with the fabric frame.

This is a close-up. The small boarder is actually stitched and has a small bow on the bottom.

First post

I'm not too sure what I'm going to be "blogging," but I thought I'd try! My son is napping right now, so I had a bit of time on my hands. . . in-laws are visiting so that means hubby and Grandpa are out in the garage working around and having fun and Grandma is reading a Grisham book. Not too much to report right now - just trying something new.
Hope all is well with you!

Question: How personal should blogs like this get?
