YES!!! It's finally finished!! After three years ( how embarrassing) Chatelaine Spring Morning is finished! Although I have just noticed whilst looking at the photos I've uploaded that I have missed some beads so please ignore that little hiccup and I'll go away in a bit and sew them on! No one will ever know:) Lol! Now that it's done all that beading was well worth it as it's just so pretty ( even though I say so myself!). The reason it took me three years is that when I got to the lily of the valley bit I simply ran out of steam and put it away. This year I decided it was time I tackled it and attempted to finish it and with the help of Julie, Mr Stick and the girls at Stitch and Stash on UFO night I have:) So thank you to all of you though especially to Julie who runs the UFO night. So here's some pictures for your enjoyment ( I hope!) They are not the best as it's a bit dull here today, plus I don't seem to be able to get them very clear either, but as far as I know they are clickable if you'd like a closer look!
