And here we are! The cross stitch is done


I finished the last little bit of cross stitch this morning - on to the beading and specialty stitches!

I'm off to see Riverdance this afternoon, and then out on a business trip tomorrow, so I'm not sure how much I'll get done this week. It would be really nice to crack open the little watchmaker cases of beads that the kit from European Cross Stitch came with though....

Wow, it's beautiful, Karin!

We're going to see Riverdance next Saturday evening and I can't wait! It's my birthday that day and we're taking my mom as her Christmas present.

I saw "Riverdance" a little over a year ago and loved it live! (I think I've watched my videotape a zillionteen times.)

"Alhambra" is gorgeous; can't wait to see the finish!!

OMG, the stitching is all done!! That's what happens when I turn my back for a few weeks! ;) Can't wait to see it all beaded and sparkly, although it looks stunning even without the beads! :D
