Happy Dancing!!

And a great big happy dance it is too! Today I put the final stitches into Pacific Pohutukawa … and seeing as the Pohutukawa is the New Zealand Christmas tree, it’s finished at an appropriately festive time of year 😀 I have to say, though, my right thumb is quite tender after dragging the thread through those corner Pohutukawa flowers … and if I don’t see another skein of DMC Rayon or Metallic thread over the next 12 months, it’ll be too soon!! LOL. Actually the scan doesn’t do the colours justice – they’re extremely vibrant! 😀

It also means my stretcher bars are now freed up ready to start my Laura J Perin piece woohoo 🙂 And seeing as Blogger photo uploading is playing nicely today, here are the next two ornies I put the finishing touches into yesterday.

That means another 3 projects off my 50 Project Challenge … leaving me with 34 left to go, I think – woohoo! 😀

  1. Your top pic is certainly bright, I bet it looks exceptional IRL. I love your ornie finishes, it is nice to see them all on the blogs.
    Enjoy your Sunday 🙂

  2. Beautiful finishes Anne!! Just love Pacific P… (not game to spell it here) beautiful colours and stitching – many congratulations!!

  3. Congrats on all of your finishes! An ornament SAL sounds good! Although I don’t normally do terribly well with actually following through, I would like to try it. There are so many ornaments that I would like to do!

  4. Congrats Anne on your stunning finish! Pacific Pohutukawa is simply awesome – love it!! Your two ornies are adorable too.
    This may not be the best of times for you… but stitching wise, you’re definitely on a roll!! Congrats! 😀

  5. Woohoo! Great finishes all, Anne! You did an incredible job and I especially love Pacific Pohutukawa with all of its vibrant colors. 🙂
