Project Finished!

I am so excited to have finished this one. It really turned out nice too. I finished it this morning instead of doing dishes, laundry or various other household tasks that could really use my attention, lol. My excuse is I have another cold so it just felt better to sit and stitch. The beads are opalescent in color and really play off the dark peach well. Things that don't photograph well. All images should be clickable so you can view a closer look if interested.

I decided now that the beads and everything is in the quirky heart works so I am going to leave it the way it was graphed. I was reading a site that explained what stitching judges look for in winning pieces and the 2nd one was no pet hair. LOL I WILL NEVER achieve that one. All of mine have pet hair no matter how hard I try to keep it out of there. Guess I shouldn't be suprised having two cats and a long haired dog. I am really excited to take this and my other daughters birth announcement in to be framed, I will have to actually work this month so that I can afford to have them done, lol.

Now for the fun part, what project do I get to buy now I have finished one?! Also which WIP am I going to pickup until I have the new project?


  1. It's beautiful, Melanie! Congratulations on the finish!

  2. Beautiful! How long did it take to stitch?

  3. 4 1/2 years, lol. I started it while I was pregnant and on bed rest and made fabulous progress, I was probably over half way done in about 2 months and then I didn't touch it again for years. I probably worked on it another six months recently until finished. I am not a slow stitcher just a busy one. I don't seem to have much time to sit and relax and stitch these days but when I do I love it.
