One more finish under my belt and I am really happy dancing over this one!

This is Picasso’s Rooster by Ladybug Designs:

I have wanted to stitch this since the first time I saw it in The Stitchery catalog years ago. I finally broke down and bought the kit sometime last year, I think, after having missed an opportunity to buy the chart directly from the designer and then finding out that it was seemingly discontinued.

The moment I saw it, it reminded me of my college, since we are known as the Fightin’ Blue Hens (modeled after the Blue Hen of Delaware). I’ve wanted to stitch it ever since and now I have!

I’m so glad that I was able to finish stitching it this weekend because I want to head to Michaels tomorrow with another piece or two in tow to get framed. I will be so happy to finally have this hanging on my wall! Perhaps I will hang it in my home office, near my diploma.

That’s it for me, for now. Time to mount another piece on the scroll bars that I just freed up (which is the real reason that I busted my hump to finish this one) and do some more stitching. We had planned to go to the Philadelphia Museum of Art today, but I did hours of yardwork yesterday and buggered my shoulders up, so now I have a headache. Oh well, it was worth the pain to get the lawn mowed and trimmed and a mass of weeds pulled. There is still a lot more to do out there, but it’s a start, at least. Maybe next time I won’t try to do so much at once. 😉
