Super-Big Happy Dance!!!


Yay! Its done! Its done! Its done!!! Celtic Banner is finished! I'm not sure exactly how many years ago, but I think I started this piece about 3 years ago on New Year's Day. For the first two years I only worked on it on New Year's Day... not really making any progress at all! This year with the support of Christin, Abi, Colleen and Carmen as part of a SAL I really finally started to work on it this year! Also with some goading from Chrisanne, as we were supposed to have stitched this together and she finished it that year that I started it!

So here it is :

Celtic Banner c2000 Marilyn Leavit-Imblum of Butternut Road
Stitched on : 28ct Cashel Linen, Heritage - From Surgar Maple Fabrics
Stitched with : DMC & Caron Wildflowers

My next project will be my TWRR unless the temptation for a quick little freebie wins over!

Amazing !!

I am just getting ready to start this. I hope the border doesn't do me in. I am sure there is a rhythm to it.
