First one !!!

The year has barely started that it's already time to get your disco ball out of your closet ( I bet it didn't have time to get dusty after New year eve !!! ) I finally finished my Margaret Sherry Christmas cat. I can tell you it was not easy to finish all those backstitches that didn't follow the squares ... I know it gives a more natural look but they are such a pain to stitch. That kitty could have been a 2009 finish but I didn't stitch a lot during the holidays.

FINISHED - 01.05.2010

So you may wonder if I went back to my Lanarte? Well, I tried but that lanarte is not like the other Lanarte I stitched before ... There are TONS of threads change all around the wreath. I stitch to relax not to get on my nerves so I'm not sure to continue that one even though I LOVE that design ...



Thank you very much for your nice comments about my 2009 finishes !! I really appreciate you take time to stop by to leave a comment!

Your Finishes are so beautiful...congratulations on all of your finishes from last year and this year. Wow...you go girl.

Please don't give up on your Lanarte Piece...those are too beautiful just to quit stitching on them.

Just take your time and just do a little bit each day on it. Before you know it you will have it finished. That is what I do with my Big Projects that has lots of color changing to them.

Take Care & Happy Stitching

A lovely finish. I avoid backstitch that don't follow the holes just hate it. Don't give up on your lanarte. I agree with the others just do a little each day.
