"I love what you did with the background. It is funny that we were talking about my husband liking the Zecca Nesting Bird and this background has some of the same elements. What thread did you use for the luscious deep blue sky?"
"Margaret- Did you recently post a picture of this piece back from the finishers? I am trying to find that picture.
Can you post it again, or e-mail it to me? email@example.com
"I just got my canvas today. I got the Witch and Cauldron--the one where the witch faces away from us and is stirring up a brew. It was hard to choose but it is too funny to see her "butt" sticking out as she stirs."
"That sounds cool. I have never heard of such a thing. Is it wood or do they do something in a "mold" with acrylic? Do you send the needlepoint piece off to them and they do the whole thing? Now I am really curious."
You mention ordering a frame. Is this one like for the Maggie pieces where it is specially made or do you mean you are having it done at the framers? I definitely plan to frame mine.

But true to my initial aspirations I did both, adult and pediatric cardiology
