It's Done

A favorite moment of mine in the movie "1776" is of John Adams' reaction when the resolution to declare independence is finally passed. It's only a few seconds long, but you can see what the struggle to accomplish this has meant to him as he simply says, "It's done. It's done." Now, I do not in any way compare my cross-stitch to the birth of a nation, but I thought of that scene yesterday when I put the last stitch in my Star Wars piece. It does still need framing (thank goodness for 75% off at Joanne's!) and then it will be shipped off to the young married couple, but the stitching is complete. For those who care about such things - start date: March 6, 2016, end date: January 2, 2017; approximate number of stitches: 46,000.
It felt very odd this morning not to be stitching before I went to work, and odd again not to be stitching at lunch. I'm taking a day or two off before I start back with the two pieces I put aside to concentrate solely on Star Wars. Meanwhile, here is my latest opus:

*semi-unrelated* ;) LOVE the movie version of 1776. Didn't know there were deleted scenes until we watched the entire version with those scenes added back in...ON July 4th last summer. I was very sad this year when both Ken Howard and James Noble died. 2016 was a rough year for fans of art, movies, television, literature, music, sports, science... *sigh*

Now I need to go watch the movie again. :)
