Happy dance time :) :) :)

The last stitches went in Angel of the Morning around 2.20pm today :)

I started her back in 2001 when she was released.   She was one of those projects that I just had to do and as soon as I got the phone call to say she was in stock I was in the car and over the pennies to Wye Needlecraft to collect her.
She got put aside for some reason (most likely a model arrived) and got ignored for a few years then she went out on a UFO RR when she arrived home she was put away once more :(

In March fella and I split up and I could not (and still can't) face working on My Ark which had been my weekend project and was one for his grandchild so I had to find another one and she talked to me.

And here she is in all her glory.

The last section to be stitched

Not the called for beads, I looked up the colours and had a root round my stash of 15's to find one's that would work

These are the called for ones tho

I'm a little sad she's done because I've enjoyed working on her (apart from the linen, I think she's the project that put me off working on it) but I'm happy to cross off a PHD esp one so old

What a stunning finish and a great story behind her too. Her face is beautiful. Hope you get her framed and enjoy her.

Congratulations on the Happy Dance. What a gorgeous face, the over one stitching is exquisite on L&L designs and worth the extra time it takes.
