Happy Dance - model finished

One of our needlework guild members, Joanne Gattenby, of X's and Oh's
is a wonderful designer. I've just finished the second model I've
stitched for her.
Here it is

me almost 800 hours. It's a big pattern with lots of colourchanges and many.many partial stitches and some stitches where you hadto stitch each section of the x. By which I mean instead of stitchinga full x, you stitched each corner separately, so it was four tinystitches, almost like doing one over one.
Now I'm going to spend some time doing some stitching for myself.

Wow - big and complex, love the very Singer sewing machine. Well done.
I just finished the first of two fingerless gloves for my son (he is out in the cold a lot taking wildlife pics) I always had a pair in my camera bag and suddenly realised he would find them useful. What horrible things to knit, this is the first and last pair ! Want to finish the other in the next couple of days.
Hope the weather wasn't too bad with you last week.

Wow! That's an intricate piece. I can see why it took so many hours!
And really, as far as one's "entertainment dollar" goes, cross stitch has to be one of the cheapest hobbies around. Even with supplies plus framing, it's a fraction the cost of a movie, a book (other than library, of course), or any one of a number of other hobbies!

What a lot of work and beautifully done. I love it and can see it hanging perfectly in someone's craft room.

Oddly enough, we haven't had a lot of bad weather in this part of Ontario. We're having light flurries today, but only have a couple of inches on the ground.
Now western Ontario, northwest of London has been buried. Well over 300 vehicles stranded on Hwy 402 last week.
I hope you didn't get washed away with all the rain the Maritimes has had.

Halifax scraped through but it was a mess in NB - a really bad mess but I didn't worry about Sharon in NB because although she is near the river, we are all in desperate trouble if she floods lol Cape Breton also took a big hit.

WOW - congrats on finishing that, Marg. It's just grand.
When I first read this sentence, I honestly thought it said you were going to stitch this again for yourself - and just about choked thinking of all the work. But, actually reading instead of skimming - glad to see that you're going to have some time to stitch for yourself now.
Congrats again on finishing the fabulous model. I actually have a couple of the X's & Oh's charts - even have Hockey Santa all kitted up (and sent one to Cheryl as well, go figure) for the past 2 years!. It's moving up in the get started queue.
Have a happy... Ellice
