Happy Dance Time

Wow, this is a rare post. It's been a long time since I have a major HD. The previous ones were the RR, but this is bigger, though by no means huge. I don't know when I will have one of those buge BAP finish. Anyhow, wedding blessing is finally finished. I started this in 2004 when I was still living in London. After some major long breaks in between, here it is, finally finished

You can't see much of the numerous backstitch which I did over the last week, but they are there. I also add in some beads from Amanda's collection. This was using mine and Amanda's creativities as the chart don't call for beads. I used black beads for the dragon and phoenix's eyes, also add in some beads in her dress and flowers in her hair. I also put in a few beads in his hat + collar. As I said you probably can't see much on the computer.

Also photobucket has a feature to make a slideshow which I've been meaning to try, However I can't find my earlier pictures of this now, I saved them to a disc somewhere when I changed computers since the beginning. They might appear in a few more days time. The slideshow took a bit of hassel to create. But I'm happy with it.

What's next ? Well I have so many wips and stash. I might try to finish off one of my chatelaine, That will be a huge HD. Also I'm involved in a few SAL. Too many choices, so little time. LOL

Congrats for the happy dance! I had a HD on the weekend too - long weekends are great like that.

The photo slideshow looks great. Have fun with your next WIP.

Oh, Tim, they are so sweet! I'm much happier to think of this on *your* wall, knowing it's part of your own heritage. It'll make a great gift to pass down to Vivienne when...well...we don't need to Go There, do we? ;-)
