Happy Dance!!!

I nearly forgot to post my latest happy dance-- a project completed just over a week ago, on the day after Thanksgiving. With my lack of computer time and focus on exchange stitching, this one nearly slipped through the cracks. And it's a big one! I finally finished Spanish Geometrical Sampler. Woohoo!!!



Also, I realized after Tessa asked about Robert's Stocking that I really need to update my sidebar. It's terribly out-of-date. Tessa, the stitching on Robert's Stocking has been completed for a while. I just need to add the embellishments, which I've purchased but haven't found the time to sew on. I had hoped also to finish Sophie's Stocking this year, so that BF and I would have a matched pair, but I didn't even start the second stocking. Oh well, maybe we'll have them by next Christmas.

Juanita, that is just absolutely gorgeous piece. I love the colors you chose-I have that pattern in my stash. Would you mind sharing your color conversion? Congrats on the finish!

Congrats on the finish - the sampler is beautiful. Nice job on the stocking too.

Your ornaments also look great! I think I get a lot of mileage out of the JCS ornament issues too!

Well done - you deserve a happy dance on 2 lovely finishes. the geometrical one is just lovely, I haven't seen that one before. Are you going to get it framed?
The stocking is also very nice - it took me 2 years to finish a stocking for everyone on my house but it is so nice to see them all hanging together now.

You did a wonderful job with the colors Juanita. I picked the purple and greens since I wanted to use some colors that I normally wouldn't pick so quickly LOL. Your version is really stunning.
Thanks for sharing your pics,
