It’s about time!

My days with Stitchin’ Richard are over.  I was beginning to think I might never have the chance to say it.   Yes, Stitchin’ Richard is complete.  Finished.  Done.

Here he is, folks!  Stitched, set, washed and blocked:

    Beautiul. Now — frame him and hang him on the wall, or sew him onto a pillow and press him to your chest and nuzzle his cheeks???

      Thanks, Serv. I’d love to sew him into a pillow, but….after spending 261+ hours stitching, I’d hate to make a pillow and then have something spill on it! I’m feeling sick just thinking of it. lol
      I think I am going to frame him. I’d love to have his autograph on a piece of cardstock to mount on the matting under the glass, but that would require me to write and ask for it. I don’t see that happening any time soon!
