Happy dance

Finally finished this piece. I LOVED working on this.  The hidden images emerged as it was being stitched because you couldn't see them in the chart.  I was actually telling Dani that I think that I might even stitch this again one day on black but reverse the direction and have them both on the same wall.  I think that would look amazing.

Thank you again Dani for letting my borrow your chart! :)

Went and did a little bit of shopping today.  Went to Peir 1 and bought a few new ornies for the formal tree.  Oh they have such beautiful ornaments there!  The colours are stunning.  I got some fun pieces...plus I got my gift for the secret Santa at work from there as well. 

Right now I'm pinning ornies to backings and getting ready to hoping run them thru the sewing machine tonight.  I just want them all done by next weekend.  So even if I don't get all of them done tonight, I'll still have the rest of the week. :)

Holy crows, you stitched that fast! Are there singe marks on your fabric from that red-hot needle? lol Great finish, Barbi!
