Oh Happy Day! Oh Happy Dance!!!!

Well, fourteen weeks to the day, and its done! On Monday January 3rd I started Teresa Wentzler's Wedding Sampler and today Monday April 11th I finished it! I was really aiming for a weekend finish, but the sampler needed about 3 more hours worth of work today. But now, its DONE!!!

I stitched it on the recommended 28ct Platinum Lugana and it is stitched using DMC cotton and rayon floss, accented with Mill Hill Beads.

So here it is : Wedding Sampler by Teresa Wentzler c2001 Leisure Arts (from the Best of Teresa Wentzler Sampler Collection)


So now comes the tough decision... what do I stitch on between now and May 1st when I start my Celtic Band Sampler SAL with Katrina? Hmmm..

Well I know I do need to stitch my April ornament, and I have something picked out if my supplies for my ornament RR haven't arrived in the next day or two. Also my Wee Beasties RR is finally home! But I don't want to share a picture yet because its missing my bug and I'd like to put a border on it. I plan to make it into a bell pull. My current travel project is Michael Powell's Mini Cottages 2, there's that. Or there's Celtic Banner by Butternut Road, or my long ignored Noah's Sub from Stoney Creek.

Oh the decisions, oh the agony!!!

Now For Something Completely Different...

So this weekend I also framed two more pieces for a customer :



And I've finally posted a picture of a piece I framed earlier last week for a different customer (see, when it rains it pours!)
