Happy Dance With Me x 2!

But very gently as I'm feeling a little delicate today! No it's not a hangover! Lol! Anyway the reason for my happy dance is....... are you ready for this?............. I have finally finished HAED QS Girly Gothic!!! Round of applause please! LOL! This wee girly was started way back in 2007, was put away on 2008 where she kicked and screamed and was finally let out again a few months back!
Heaven and Earth Designs QS Girly Gothic

Artwork by Caron Vinson

Stitched on 25 count Dragon Shades Stormy Skies

DMC & Madeira Glissen Gloss.

Started 25th August 2007

Finished 17th May 2009

24,600 stitches

For Abi.

My next HAED start is going to be TT Purple Dragon which is mine all mine! I'm also hoping to take part in the SK SAL which is starting on the HAED forum June/ July.

So you may be wondering what my happy dance no.2 is??? Yes it is Drawn Thread My Favourite Things:) I put the last stitches into it last night and added the charm and heart treasures to it. I'm not sure yet whether I'll have this framed or finish it with a bell pull. I loved stitching this although it was a bit of a challenge with some of the speciality stitches but it was well worth it:)

I must apologise for not getting round to all the blogs I read and comment on. This PC is a major headache these days. I use Firefox for most of my browsing but have to use Internet Explorer to comment on some blogs and it's so slow and locks up and I have to wait for it to sort itself out before I can carry on. Sometimes I get so fed-up of it I just shut the PC down and walk away! I promise I will get around to all of them eventually!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Love Letters finish.

Take care everyone.
Hugs

Congratulations! I suspect that if I were to tackle a HAED, it would end up a UFO very quickly and stay there... Well done you for finishing it!

I too am finding it difficult keeping up with blogs. Wouldnt be so bad if I just read them but I nearly always want to leave a comment as there are just so many beautiful things in them, and its the comments that really take the time.
