OMGosh

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm sure glad that your all sitting down for this shocker.  I actually finished the Stable today at 2:26 AM.   AND, it only took me 16 months.  I sure hope the Steam Train doesn't take that long. (You can click on any of the pics to enlarge.)







Cut-thru Stable - Bothy Threads
 14ct  Blue Whisper Aida
Started 4-1-13
Finished 7-26-14

I failed the Serial Starter Challenge on FB.  I didn't get Happy Camper by Diane Arthurs quite done.
as of 7-10-14

So I joined another challenge on FB.  It's the old and new challenge.  We pick one old project to try and finish and start a new one and try to finish both by August 27.  I think I have a better chance of getting this one done.


Thanks for looking.   Linda

Congratulations on the Happy Dance, love all the details in the stable, especially the little signs down the right hand side.

The new Satsuma Street is gorgeous, those charts are on my wishlist too!

Beautiful Work!! You make me want to start "Happy Camper". My daughter gave me the chart and threads for Christmas to hang in our RV but I have yet to start it.
Hugs,

SoCal Debbie said...

Oh yippee, Linda! You're such an awesome stitcher! Big happy dance for your Stable finish! I love all the close-up pics and notice new details every time I look at them.

Happy Camper is so close to a finish, just a bit more backstitching and some more green and it will be time for another happy dance!

You'll definitely finish Summer Season soon. New York is a great choice for your first Satsuma Street design!

It's wonderful!!! Lots of work in that project and it's lovely.

You asked if my Halloween piece was older. It's a 2004 pattern, yet I just bought it.

Hurrah for finishing a Cut-Through piece. That's a major accomplishment and I'm happy dancing with you.
