Last finish for a while

I think I may be at the end of my record-breaking run of wee finishes now … I stayed up late tonight to put the final beads onto my little ornie, making 4 finishes in as many days – woohoo! 😀

Rosewood Manor-Red Berries

I really should learn to take photos in daylight, instead of 11.30pm under bright light globes!  It really doesn’t do this piece justice, as the beads are a beautiful metallic red.  I have to admit, though, if I were to do this piece again, I would probably forget about the ‘star/snowflake’ things in the corners, as it seems a bit overcrowded and overpowering to me … but all in all I’m relatively happy with it 🙂

Now I have the quandary of what to work on next … I’m pretty keen to work on a number of projects, and the main ones that are calling me are probably the following:

  • Ghastly Ghostly Ghouls – Just Nan
  • Hocus Pocus – Lizzie*Kate
  • Winter Snapperland – Bent Creek
  • Ladybug, Ladybug – Little House Needleworks
  • 2008 Halloween Fairy – Mirabilia (magazine chart)
  • Halloween Needleroll – Shepherd’s Bush
  • Quaker Huswif – Sampler Cove

And the list goes on … and on … and on …

Ah, decisions, decisions … 😛
