Naturistic Finished!

I did it! Finished Naturistic yesterday afternoon. One of the fastest large projects ever.

Started Feb 6, 2016 - Finished May 26, 2016
If I figured correctly, that is 109 days and 49,750 stitches. Which when you think about it isn't some amazing number of stitches on the average day...about 2 1/4" square per day. But, there were several days, even weeks that there wasn't one stitch stitched.

Taking this one to Crafty Ewe in Broadview Heights to be framed. DH just doesn't have enough time to make frames like I would like. dare work get in the way of a craft....geez!

Usually, I sign the large pieces below the lower right corner. This time I signed the piece in the picture like a painting. It's in purple and doesn't scream, "Hey, look here...a signature!"

My son has spoken for this piece. Courtney wants Colorful Sky.

I have the top half finished and need to get on it. BUT...

What did I kit up this morning? The Snowflower Diaries March and June. Going to do them both on a 28ct Cashel Country Cream. Just loving the bear in the June piece. These are going to finished in a frame so I can pop them in and out. I do this with some Lizzy*Kate pieces. It's just kind of wonderful to be able to see them all and tire of none.

Well...time to go enjoy the porch. The humidity is low and there is a nice breeze. Not going to be on the highways this holiday weekend. Let the cops bother someone else...and not worry of wrecks and wackos!

Hope everyone has a wonderful enjoyable weekend. Maybe on Tuesday I'll have another finish. Ha, that would be my second this year and twice as many as last year. What's happened to me? I used to stitch 50-70 pieces per year.

Ok, off to herd turtles.(as Coni would say)

I am amazed that you finished that beautiful piece in such a short amount of time.

Wow! That's gorgeous! You deserve to stitch a couple smalls for yourself before returning your attention to Colorful Sky, and you picked the perfect series. Enjoy!
