A Very Happy Dance...

I put the last few stitches in this last week, but Christmas preparations prevented me from posting pictures of it.. Rosewood Manor's Spring Quaker has been a delight to stitch.

Each motif is different and the colours are beautiful. I have loved watching this grow.


I put in my own initial rather than that of Karen Kluba the designer.
In 2012, I have all ready kitted up... Anniversaries of the Heart, a Blackbird design, all 12!!  plus another Rosewood Manor called Quakers and Quilts.. as well as these I have several charts all ready to stitch so watch this space!  I am thinking of joining in a challenge, where you declare what you have to stitch and then stitch like mad all year to get them completed! Anyone know of any or I may start one myself?

Thank you for your lovely card and for your heart felt message. I cannot tell you what a comfort it is to have people such as yourself by my side and supporting me.

That is a beautiful finish, well done. And lovely projects to come.
You could try the 2012 WIPOCALYPSE or there will probably be the 2012 weekly SAL I started in 2009/10 (???)
I am no longer part of it but it is there and still going strong xxx

It's beautiful as is all your stitching. I'm wondering what you do with it all when finished...

Beautiful work Chris, love that design. Do you do your own framing? I've, finally, had my West Wind framed, very happy with it.

Congrats with this fantastic finish. Love it. It looks just gorgeous. I have this one all kitted up waiting for me. (same to Anniversaries...sigh)
I only know the crazy january challenge where you 15 days long every day start another project and then try the rest of the year to finish them.

Hi Chris - absolutely stunning work! Rosewood Manor's pieces are just amazing. I was neutral until I saw Karen's booth at Celebration of Needlework in Nashua, NH and my jaw just dropped! (now I want to stitch everything by her!)

Thanks for joining the WIPocalypse for next year. I wanted to confirm that I've added you to the participant list and to my blog reader.

Happy stitching!
