Tadaaaaa .......................

You really thought you will be old enough to retire when I would have finished my Lanarte but I have proved you wrong !!! Oh, let's all go get our glitter ball first (every stitcher MUST have a working glitter ball in her closet! ) and tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa:

(Yes, it's clickable for your enjoyment ) You know what I can't believe? I started it on march 28 th Jeez, I've been dealing with that one for 4 loooooooooooon months ... Well, I did take a summer break (stitching my Santa Noel and my april's shower) which helped save my sanity and sense of humor Now, the exciting news: I feel free to start a new and larger project (this is me in looking at my stash - ok I'm drooling too but I need to keep giving my reader the impression that I am a respectable wife and mother. : that's not the way to see me, right? ). I chased my forgotten stitches and I even found a large part still unstitched . I think I didn't forget too many stitches ... Anyway, if it looks finished for you, I'll go ahead and won't interfere with you ! I really want to thank you for your support because there were really some moments where I just wanted to give up on that one .... Thank you all !

I couldn't believe it was really finished and that I could stitch guilt free on my little birdie !!! I did make nice progress on the birdie though:

Now the progress will be slower because the frame around the bird requires to change my threads every 4 or 5 stitches. It's a really cute birdie. I really hesitated before choosing the fabric as I had never stitched on some so dramatic fabric before but I don't regret it at all.

Today while I was away at my friend's house, Chuy decided to do some cleaning up. Translated from men's language, it means : making piles and making it impossible for your wife to find HER stuffs ... He was very nice to buy bread this morning but he lost my good bread knife (but I am a woman that means I am smart and have a second bread knife to save my day )

Wooooooo! Congratulations con your wonderful Lanarte finish Chiloe! What a great job. Four months isn't really long for a project that size. I'm looking forward to seeing your next new start.

Congratulations, Chiloe; it's stunning! Woo hoo!

You've made amazing progress on the chickadee. I'm in love with this design. If you ever feel like giving away or selling the pattern when you're thru...can I have first dibs???

Congratulations on a beautiful finish! Four months sounds quick to me, LOL!

Kendra said...

Congrats on the finish! You survived the green! :-) I remember when you started it...but I would not have guessed it was way back in March.

Your comment about typing my entry up in Word...I did that at one point...computer locked up on me before I could save it. And no virus on it, either. Sometimes it takes on a mind of its own and goes into La La Land. :-) I hate computers.
