Wanna dance?

Yes, ladies: we have a happy dance to report This afternoon, I put that LAST (and very welcome) cross stitch on the fabric!!! I am SOOOOOOOOOO happy! I didn't blog because I wanted to show you a picture of the angels finished !

So I started it on july 31st and finished today, september 29 th!!! It took me only 2 months to complete but it feels more than that. Now I need to wash it (I've never washed any pieces before ... ) I'm so afraid of messing the whole piece ...


I could have finished a little earlier but I took a small break from it and I started my mexican Bolly the bear by Lanarte (fall 2007 collection) Well, sometimes breaks are necessary So here are my progress pictures of the mexican bear:

Started: september 27 th 2007.

As of september 28 th 2007.


We can't really tell but I am stitching it on a 28 count goldspinner lugana by Silkweaver. It really looks nice: it's a dark yellow. As you can tell, I'm making very good progress because his belly is almost finished I can't not believe how fast I'm going on that one !!! It's nice to relax on a small project. It's also funny because I can say: I'm almost finished I want to finished that one and then start the little mouse.

My printer is still not working well... I tried to reinstall it but when I'm done, I am missing an important component: the one that allow you to save the scan image on the computer ... I sent an email to HP and will wait for their answer ...

So now, let's dance
