2011 BBD Loose Feathers Is Done

There is a happy dance going on here at Tot Hill.



I was able to sit down and finish this one. Sorry for the poor picture. It is late and past my bedtime :). I will have it framed. I am very happy with it.
I cannot believe it is the first of March. When I got in my car to leave work today the temperature read 83 degrees. I think it is going to be a long hot summer.
Since it is the first of March I can show you a pic oft next ornament for the Christmas All Year Long SAL. This month it is Stitcher's choice so I have chosen another of those kits I have.



This is the Designs by Cathy Jean ornie from the 2007 JCS ornament issue. It is the little ornament on the left with the buttons. I will start it this weekend.
I got the new issue of The Gift of Stitching today too. It really has some nice pieces in it.

Bedtime now for me, both jobs tomorrow.
Sweet dreams.

Chris, what a fantastic finish! I keep looking at my three charts and then I tell myself "nah" - I am a bit overwhelmed by the many, many stitches that go into this beauty! Luckily there are stitchers out there who are not as lazy as I am... LOL
Great job, so pretty and the stitching is perfect! Can't wait to see how it looks when it is "finished finished"!
