Happy dancing and a tra la la!

I have finished this in record time.. so off this morning to arrange for it to be framed. It is for the church I have been attending these last four years, the best part of Coventry!
I like it in all the different colour blues and His Name is Jesus in the darker colour so it stands out. I am very pleased with myself for getting it stitched in such a short time. ( I started it on 25th February)

And here is Sal Aux Bouquet all kitted up and ready to go. I am using 32C even weave in cream and the recommended DMC threads. I have down loaded the first two parts and will buy number III when it comes out. 
It is a SAL on the French web site hence the name, but I am in a SAL with Needlecraft Haven. It was planned to start on the 15th March, but I wanted to finish one of my WIPs before I started it. I might have a few things on the go but I like to finish one thing before I start another!
That way I don't feel so guilty starting some thing new even though I have others to stitch. Anyway my explanation is with a few things on the go I don't get board because I always have some thing different to stitch!
Tomorrow is  the Meet Up of the Needlecraft Haven-ers in Nuneaton so I am really looking forward to that!
Happy Stitching and aren't the spring flowers beautiful... gives me a boost when ever I see them.

It's beautiful Chris and you've stitched it so quickly, I'm sure the church will love it. Have a lovely day at your meet up and watch out for the postie as your PIF is on its way.......x

That is a lot of stitching to accomplish in less than a month! And the color shades look very good.

Congrats on the finish! I love it, it's so beautiful and such a wonderful reminder of everything that Jesus is. I need to start this too.

Well, I don't understand any of your stitchery vocabulary, but I do love your work for the church! Wish I could do something like that. :D

Great finish - I love the different blues, looks beautiful. You're organised for the Jardin prive SAL - I haven't even stash dived for fabric yet (been busy kitting up ornies instead). I love seeing all the Spring growth too - great lift after all thesnow we had. :0)
