As requested, I uploaded my FAS that I designed. Warning…it is not stitched with HDF. I wish it was but a friend wanted to gift me the supplies and she took me to the local store and we picked out fabric and thread. (And I think 2006 was when I bought my first HDF after I had started this). Anyway, I designed this in 2006 and every year, I stitch a little more on it. I enjoy it a lot but I also jump around with different projects, most of them large. I have about 20 projects in rotation (and another 10 in hibernation). If you click on the pics in my album, you will see close ups and comments on the personalization.
The border and alphabets were from public domain and I have a motifs book (also public domain images) that I worked from. It was fun to design!
