The piece is so close to being done and the voting was so close.
I really do appreciate all your comments. As I was trying to decide, I know what I like but I didn’t want to be 100% wrong. I can live with 50% wrong. 🙂 But really, I suppose anything short of 100% right is wrong but . . that’s an argument for another day.
The votes, at least the last time I looked, are so close that I feel like I’m not crazy wrong in wanting to leave it as it is. Here’s my plan: I’m going to see my dad soon and I’ll show it to him as it is and tell him I can change the dates. He’ll probably say no . . leave it like it is because he’s my dad and I mostly do everything right in his eyes. Then, if he says leave it as it is, I’ll show it to Chad and see what he says because he’s the one who will end up with this piece and the letters and whatever else I have that belongs with this piece.
I thought I could totally finish it last night but I didn’t get the rest of the black flag stitched. I’ll hopefully get that done this morning because I’ll probably see Chad this afternoon. So many “hopefullys” and “probablys” in my life! 🙂
Once I get the black flag finished, I’ll outline where I want to the edge of the “margins” to be, and then I’ll order the frame. I should see my dad again in a few months so I can show it to him with the frame but not yet totally finished and see what he thinks and I can still change the colors of the dates if he wants to change it.
I spent a few minutes looking at frames last night. This is probably my first choice.
This is probably my second choice.
And this is probably my third choice.
I’ll let Vince look at them and see what he thinks. He sometimes has a better eye for this kind of stuff than I do.
