BOAF HHS HD


Translated that means Birds of A Feather Happy Hearts Sampler Happy Dance!!! Yes, I finished the piece at 10:20am this morning. I've been working exclusively on it since Tuesday after a two day break of no stitching. I realized that I would be finished pretty quickly if I just kept going, so that's what I did! I am sooooo happy to be finally finished with this UFO. My first finish of 2006!
Since I've gotten that piece off my lap so to speak, I'm going to focus on finishing my SBEBB Valentine's exchange and my birthday exchange piece for Karen. This is UFO stitching week with LAS so I'm going to also pick out the next UFO piece to work on. I'm thinking it may be Glory Bee's Bon Bini but I'm thinking about ripping it all out and stitching it over one so I'll have to see. Would that negate it's being a UFO if it's started over? If not, I have a class piece that's been in the pile for a good 2 years so maybe that will be next!

The SAL for the Miss Mary Mack over one tin pin piece is also getting started soon so I plan to pull my chart, fabric and threads for that. That will probably be my first start of 2006! Who knows what will happen after a romp through the stash.....

Wow - a big congratulations! That looks fantastic! How & where will you display it? Did you follow the recommended color key? And when does the Miss Mary Mack SAL start? I didn't write it down, and my head appears to have a hole in it somewhere right under my memory.
