WHEW! That simply must be said. Oh my gosh, this was a labour of love. What a tremendous amount of work. After all of the many, many hours I spent beading this today, I definitely need time on the treadmill tomorrow. I feel so stagnant and crampy from sitting and finishing this off! But, I just had to finish it tonight because Monday and Tuesday are SAL commitments, and I just wouldn't have felt right having MTM sit around for two days without getting it done! So, here it is, in all of it's glory!!
I've been asked by a few what will take MTM's place now that it is finished. Well, as tempted as I am to start a new project, particularly Bay Sampler by The Workbasket, I really don't think that I should! I have some major WIPS that need some serious attention now: Mermaids of the Deep Blue, Mermaid Heaven, Angel of Love, Convent's Herbal Garden, Women of the Mayflower, Girl with Cat, 17th C Irish Garden, A Christmas Spirit, An Open Heart, Paradigm Lost, An Emblem of Love, Houses of Hawk Run Hollow, Bordeaux Sampler, Blessings Be Thine, Little Wings.... probably others too... plus Katrina and I are due to start Violet and Lace Sampler together.. and I am still plugging away at Mystery IX. That's kind of a lot of WIPS, isn't it?? Yikes. I would say my plate is still full!!!
