45,000 Stitches = HAPPY DANCE
It is done. 45,000 stitches and two years later, on July 26th at 8:10 p.m. I put the last stitches in Noddy.
It was a long haul, not always fun but there is a great sense of completion now.
I am on vacation at our cottage deep in the bush of Northern Ontario until August 9th. Internet will be very sporadic but will check in when I can get in to town to the local library. We have our youngest son and his family with us for the first week. Assorted cousins and their families will be arriving with trailers and tents for the August long weekend. It should be a lot of fun.
The second week will be a more restful time with Leo's brother and his wife sharing some time with us. They have a new grandson born in Victoria, B.C. last week and so Leo and I have a new great nephew - welcome Owen Cooper!! and yes, that means another baby sampler. Now that Noddy is done I can start stitching the sampler.
A special thank you to Vonna for all her encouragement when I struggled to find the incentive to stitch on Noddy. Her quirky comments always made me smile and pick up my stitching again.
Well folks - our typical summer - another day of rain - and so we have all piled into the van are off to Kirkland Lake on a "road trip".
Till next time - keep those needles smoking everyone.
