Happy Dance

Hello sweet blog friends. First off, many thanks for the sentiments on my "getting caught" post last time. DH now knows he can't see it til it's done so he needs to stay a good ten feet away while I'm at my stitching spot. And that he must act surprised and happy when he finally sees it, haha.
Anyway, here's a Happy Dance, in bad lighting I must say. Yep, soon as I got the Rum Raisin, the needle was ready to race to the finish line: 

 
 "We Thank Thee"
by Silver Creek Samplers
14ct. Natural Aida
Save for the first skein debacle and my faulty floss guesstimating skills, I had fun stitching this sampler. The repetitive pattern was relaxing and I find the font pretty.
With that done, I might look into another start, leaning towards a Halloween piece.

Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!

  14. Congratulations on your Happy Dance. This looks awesome! I love the font and the colours too. Even the border looks fun to stitch. I have a liking for that style of chequerboard stitching.
