Major Happy Dance time

I've been beading Toy Gatherer all week whenever I had chance and today I put the last bits on him so he is at long last done, wooohoooooo

The journey started many, many moons ago before I started to keep a record of my stitching so he was started before 2004 but I have no idea when exactly that was!  Last November I decided to make him my weekend project and apart from a brief break over Christmas while I did Charmed Hearts he's seen progress every weekend for 6 months!  

He started out last November looking like this and ta da









I've left off the ribbon on his hat because I wasn't happy with it and was fed up of fiddling with it and I've not added the beard either cause I don't like them :)

I will be putting the chart and left over threads up for sale in a few days if anyone is interested

Fantastic finish! What a long term WIP and how nice to see him finished.
I love all the close up photos of the details, especially the charms and the patterned clothes.

What a lovely finish Lindsay, the beading adds a neat touch to the overall design. It didn't take you long to get it done.
