Crazy Challenge Day 6 AND A Happy Dance!

Sorry for no post yesterday, it was the first day back to work and I was absolutely pooped when I got home.  I crashed for a few hours!

Christmas Doves I - Flowers and Vines Dove
c2012 JBW Designs
stitched on 28ct black lugana using DMCS

Leaf
c2010 Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks
Stitched on 28ct hand painted joblean spring leaf from X's and Oh's
Stitched with Glorianna Red Clay & Mill Hill 3038

Not only do I have ONE Happy Dance to share with you but TWO!  Just a short while ago this evening I put the last beads on my Day 1 start!  I am just SOOO pleased with how this piece turned out since I only had a chart and a thread colour in mind.  I dug through my stash of fabrics coming across what I felt was the coolest fabric for this piece, a hand painted fabric with leaves on it!  Then last night at 11PM I was digging around for beads to match it and whoila!  The whole piece has come together so beautifully!



So far I've finished starts #1, 2 and 6... not bad!  I do feel like I'm starting to miss my bigger WIPs like The Accolade and Christmas ABC Sampler, another reason why most of these starts have been on the smaller side.
