At last!

She is finished - and I love her ... I don't think I really took in how many beads there are, hard work to put on, but really really worth it - I think the colours in this are just beautiful.

Started September 05, Finished 14 May 2006. Stitched on Kiwi Illusions - Riverstone (32ct Evenweave).

It was Mothers Day here yesterday, and I have to say I had a very disappointing day - I didn't expect gifts, I knew our bank account wouldn't allow it and I plan on buying a good photo editing program as soon as we're able as my gift anyway. But I did expect a bit more loving - know what I mean? But it's done and gone, and I'm grumpy, over-worked, over-demanded upon and just plain worn out right now, so a lot of it has got to do with my mood! I got my package from SB&B today in the mail, so that kinda made up for it - one of the nice things about them taking a bit longer is that I've usually forgotten what I've ordered, so it's always a nice surprise to open it! LOL

Because I was having a bad day yesterday, I decided to stitch whatever I wanted (instead of the darn Mirabilia RR I'm putting off finishing) ... and started Woodland Cottage by Elizabeth Designs, I'm really going to have to put it aside and stitch the Mirabilia tonight though ;)

Winter has arrived here ... I'm thinking of lighting the fire after I've picked up Charlotte from Kindy - my hands are freezing!

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers out there - I hope you're having a really nice day :)

Love Celtic Summer Lisa, can't wait to see her in person.

Yes, winter has arrived, and did you feel the earthquake this morning.....

Hope stitching by the fire is good for you today.

Celtic Summer looks beautiful. Great job done. I have Woodland Cottage in my stash to do with a couple of other Elizabeth Designs. I will watch your progress with this one. They look real fun stitches.

Jenna said...

Woohooooo! Look at that! Celtic Summer looks terrific. I hope that you'll do yourself a favor and get her framed as soon as you can afford to. She really needs to be hanging on a wall in a place of prominence. Congratulations on an excellent finish!

Hi Lisa,
Your Celtic Summer is breathtaking. It is so lovely. You do gorgeous work. I love that your picture is so clear so we can really see and appreciate the detail.
For what it's worth, Happy Mother's Day Lisa.
