One Nation Complete


May I present - 
One Nation
by ByGone Stitches
32 ct Belfast Country Mocha
DMC conversions
I checked back to a previous post and found that I started this project March 22, 2011. So, nearly a year later (well, 348 days to be exact) I have finished this bad boy.

Picked up Red Birds this morning. Still love the whole concept of the project. This is what it looked like last November.


It is a bit further along than this picture but I think this one will hold me until Mary Jane is ready to start 272 Words. 

Thanks to all of you who told me how you host your photos. Lee mentioned I may be misreading my limits. Hmm, this is always a possibility. But, if not, Cathey mentioned Photobucket. I think I have some research to do. 

Ordered the porch railing yesterday and we may get half the order this afternoon  - at the latest Friday afternoon! My porch will be smashing! hehehe happy dance

On another front the boy has orientation on Friday! He worked for a telemarketing firm last summer and hated it. So, this summer it's Mickey D's! At least the restaurant is one mile away instead of twenty-two. But, there's the issue of the goatie -- it has to go. (Pardon me while I chuckle)
