Celtic Band Sampler Happy Dance!

At long last, and can you believe I finished it? I feel like I have done very little other than stitch on this sampler for the entire four days that I have been on break. This evening, with more than half of the final band left to do, I needed a break. Mike and I went for a drive and we found an excellent restaurant with a pub in it about 20 minutes north of us - The Red Blazer in Concord, NH. We enjoyed a light meal before we came back home so I could finally finish this. I will have him take a better pic of it tomorrow, but he is struggling with a computer problem tonight, so I will leave him alone :-) This photo actually shows the fabric more accurately though (Silkweaver 32 ct Rock Quarry lugana). Stitched 5/13/05 - 9/5/05 using my rotation system.

The best news of all is now I can finally start Celtic Winter sometime this week for the SAL :-)

Not much else to say today, just been stitching... I need a life :-)

Stitched on today: Celtic Band Sampler - Happy Dance!! Finally!!!!
