It's FINISHED!!!!!

It's finished!!! I'm very happy, I finished "Walking to Town". It was the first project I started last fall (I want to say I started it right around Labor Day) but I really only stitched it at work on my lunch hour. And I took a month off between Thanksgiving and Christmas to concentrate on Christmas ornaments.

It's hard to tell in this picture, but the floating dots are beads. As usual, it called for French knots, but I refuse to get aggravated! I substituted clear Mill Hill beads, and they do look nice and sparkly, I must say.

I'm not sure whether I'm going to frame this, make it into a pillow, or what. But it's done, and I'm happy with the way it turned out. Now to figure out a NEW lunch project. I think I'm going to work on "I'd Rather be 50 than Pregnant" for Jodi for her birthday in December. I'm thinking Christmas stuff (gifts, etc) may be my next set of lunch time projects. But....that can always change!

Thanks for looking.

Congrats on your finish! It's beautiful - and you are so fast! If I would have started it last fall I'd never be able having it finished less than a year later!!! :-) :-)
Looking forward to see a picture of it framed!

Very pretty! I have done a few Dimension kits just because I love the finish but I don't really care for their kits!! They are so pretty when you get done though. The beads are a great substitution for snowflakes, I like it better than the knots!! Great stitching for a lunch project. I try to catch up with emails on my lunch hour!!
