Farewell to the Dratteds!

Yup, you read the title right … I haven’t been much online over the last couple of days, but rather I’ve been spending almost every waking moment with my needle in hand sat in front of the Dratteds. And compliments of having a day off work sick yesterday (with a splitting headache and the chills – just a cold thankfully), I managed to put the final stitches into them tonight (just in time for going to work on the overnight shift). After all these years, they’re finally done! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!

I feel very relieved to have them finished finally … but in some ways a bit sad that they’ll be leaving ‘home’ soon – even if I say it myself, they’re gorgeous in real life ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you like them, John and Vicki, ‘cos your wedding present is finally stitched up for you. Now all I have to do is save up for the framing ๐Ÿ˜€

So, here they are in all their glory ๐Ÿ˜€ (Sorry, but the photo is from Photobucket as Blogger photos kept crashing my system, so you can’t click for a bigger piccie)

  7. Okay, I am really impressed with how quickly you ripped through the last section of this design! I’m surprised that your needles didn’t burn a hole through the fabric. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well done, dear girl. Brava! I’m giving you a standing ovation right now and Phoebe is looking at me like I’m a total nutjob. LOL. Congratulations on such a momentous accomplishment!
