UFO no longer … Ecstatic Happy Dance!!!

I finally plucked up the courage to just “do it” and finish the hardanger band at the top of my Crimson Fire Sampler.  I wouldn’t go to sleep last night until I’d put the very last stitches into this piece, and just managed to put the last ones it before midnight … I’m so thrilled with this one, it’s not funny!  My lack of confidence saw this end up as a UFO for 3 years … crazy, because I used to be an incredibly confident stitcher and my learning knew no bounds.  Not sure what happened really over recent years, so it felt amazingly good to prove to myself that I really can still do new things, and to ignore my inner voice in the future!!  Anyway, this is finish #3 of the year, and definitely the finish I’m most proud of since finishing off my Enchanted Mermaid last year!

Now I’m back to my “small projects” rotation slot to finish off the last 5 hours … but I won’t be stitching until midnight this time round and happy to stagger that one over a few nights! 😉

  1. Hi Anne – that’s beautiful & looking at your other stuff, so’s that.
    Caught your post about your heel – sorry to hear you’re having so much pain. My DH had a lot of foot pain a few years back – my cousin suggested orthotics which solved the problem almost overnight- suppose you’ve tried that route? Realise that won’t work for everyone & hope it gets sorted sooner rather than later.
    In the meantime, happy stitching

  2. Crimson Fire is absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth a *Happy Dance*. I am sure that it will be treasured for a long time. Take care.

  3. This is just so beautiful. I saved this post until I could see it properly on the PC! The colours are gorgeous and your stitching is so neat. I love the bottom band but the whole thing is really exquisite.
    A Very Happy Dance indeed.
