Happy dance!

I've not been posting for some days so I've an important progress to share.
Finally I finished The Stitcher by Homespun Elegance. This design has been an UFO for a long time. I started stitching it last year as a SAL with an Italian friend, Veronica. We decided to use this pattern as fibers' experimentation. We changed all the colours called for this pattern and I used some of the threads I had received when I took part in the Fiber Fenzy by PawPrint.
This is the result:

I'm pretty happy how it turned out. It was not too easy to find some colours matching the Olde Willow I had chosen for the dress of the stitcher. It's Psychedelia and it's very variegated.

I also attached some lovely buttons I could find in Florence in September. I can't beleive I found them here in Italy, but I did. They are buttons by Dress It Up.

I've not received my supplies for the Quaker Garden yet. I'm really impatient. I saw the wonderful finish of Karen and I'm so happy to have decided to stitch it.

In the meantime I worked on my monthly Flip-It by Lizzie Kate and I started stitching Daisy Lane Cottage as a SAL with the LHN group. I also created an album for my 2006 finishes and I'm updating my future projects' album. I'm reviewing all my patterns and I'm adding them slowly.
