It's getting cold so let's dance !!!!!!

You didn't think you'll have to get your disco ball out of your special closet so early, did you? Started on november 9 th 2008, I stitched on it everyday for 3 months then I gave up when the one over two light pink was almost all I had left to stitch ... Then I stitched other pieces (and finished them, yes I did ) and went back on the fucshia just recently then a miracle happened: I finished it in F I V E days. I know, I know what you think but I really couldn't get myself to pick up the needle and stitch on it ... Please, clik to enlarge
Details:


I decided that my floss had to be better organized because I used to keep my full set of DMC threads sorted by colors (because it's so beautiful that way ) but it's a pain each time you want to kit a new project )

So now, it looks like that: not so yummy, not beautiful anymore but it should make kitting a project much more easily !!!

I didn't stitch much those past days because I got addicted to a facebook game but that should change today !!!

Let's dance now !!! (it's really getting cold )

WOOHOO!!!! HD!!!! Congrats Chiloe :o) That was a big project and I'm glad to see you finish it. It's absolutely beautiful. I love how the strands come out of the flowers like that.

What's next???? ;o)

Little Cat said...

Wow Chiloe, it's gorgeous! Well done on another beautiful finish!

So what's up next? I bet it's one of your Santa's :o)

Why don't you put your threads onto bobbins in a box in number order then they're easy peasy to find when you're kitting up.

Congratulations on your fuschia finish! It really is quite beautiful.

I need to get in and organise all my threads. I just don't know how I am going to do it yet.

Congratulations!!! the fuchsia is beautiful,but hard to stitch, is a pretty work.

Yeahhhhhhhhh!!!! So glad for you you finished this one!!!! There's just no word to decribe your fuschia's. They are gorgeous. So, now, after your facebook addiction, what's going to be next? ;o)

Dawn said...

It's gorgeous! 5 days?! Wow! I can't do that fast. LOL

Keep that drawers but buy more drawers. Put the group of numbers (like 200 - 210) on each sandwich ziplock bags (use tape to mark it) & put those threads in each bag. ~ Dawn ~
