Happy Dancing!

I finally finished stitching all of the pieces of the Hearts and Flowers Hardanger Collection this weekend! Yippee! Now I just need to rummage through my fabrics and see if I can find something that goes well for finishing. THAT will be quite a task (the finishing part, that is)! Photos follow; please click for bigger, better pictures.

I also downloaded part 3 of the Alchemy Stitchcraft Mystery Sampler SAL and stitched it tonight:

This photo shows parts I, II and II and is a little more true to the actual colors than the previous WIP pic. The fabric I’m using is Glass Blue Monaco (which is a 28 count evenweave). The fibers I’m using are Caron Waterlilies in Moonflower, with two DMC flosses is coordinating colors, pearl cotton #8 and #12 in white and Kreinik #4 braid in #032 (pearl).

For anyone who is interested in joining (and sorry I was remiss in mentioning this earlier), the SAL can be found on the Alchemy Stitchcraft Yahoo! group. I hope that some of you will consider joining in on the fun!

Also, thank you for all of your kind comments about my neurologist visit. I am very excited and although the previous four days were a headache nightmare for me, I’m optimistic that the new medication combined with a visit to the pscyhologist on Thursday will help me get these buggers under control. I’ve done well today, so here’s hoping for more days like this one! 😀
