Major Happy Dance!!!!

Well it's hard to believe but after 6 years I have at last finished Dragonfly :)  She was started in April 2010 and is stitched 1 over 1 on 25ct white lugana.  I am so happy, just need to get her framed now.  The thing is part of me is going to miss her.  She's been part of my life for ages.  Well here she is!

I have so got the stitchy bug at the moment that I've already made a start on Mad Queen Alice.  I'll post a picture soon, it's much bigger than Dragonfly though so she's going to be slow progress - what do you reckon?  10 years?  Lol.  The first few pages aren't going to show much of the picture and are mainly black so I guess they won't be very interesting but I'll bore you anyway.

So nearly there!

I'm still focusing on Dragonfly with every spare moment that I have to stitch.  The finishing line is so close that I can almost taste it. After however many years this has taken I will definitely be done by Christmas.

The plan once this is finished is to start Mad Queen Alice and then do that, Curl Up With A Good Book and Enchanted Flute in rotation.  Just not sure yet whether I do, say, a month on each or have to complete a page of chart on each.  I do now that due to the size of Mad Queen Alice I do intend to do her, one of the others, than back to MQA, the other design, MQA, etc.  Otherwise MQA may never get done.  Can't wait to start her although the piece of fabric is HUGE!

Happy stitching!
