Come dance with me!

 
I have finished my cut through Beach Hut.. it was the first cross stitch I picked out of my WIPs to stitch until it was finished this year. I failed to get it done by the end of January because I had to knit those socks for my youngest grandson.
I am very pleased with this now although when I was doing the back stitch,  which brings it all alive looking, I did get a few  whew feelings....as to  how much more there was to stitch. Then when I thought I had finished I saw the little bird on the life belt that still
needed to be stitched!!  I had forgotten how much this designer likes back stitch. Then it was only as I was stitching that last bird,  I realised I have used the wrong colour blue for the roof, but hey ho it looks ok.
 
To fit in with my plan for this year I have to chose another WIP now to finish.
I think it will be the 'Welcome' design with the cat on it.
I have stitched more of it then this shows.
 

But before that I want to stitch Love by the Cricket Collection for DH
 
Happy Days

Chris, It is so much fun to watch whatever you are working on to come alive. Taking stitches out is a lot harder then putting stitches in that is for sure. I am watching my neighbors shoveling out their driveway. They will come after while and take care of mine. I love hand stitching. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

That's a lot of back-stitching, but can't argue over the result. It looks great.

You can't tell that the colour is wrong, it looks fantastic.
Bothy do use a lot of backstitch, but they make such a difference to the final piece, definitely worth it!

Great job! Makes me feel like a summer day just to look at it:)
By the way, I love the blue and think it was the perfect color to use!
Blessings,
Aimee
