I received my order of the last of the beads for this one over the weekend and was finally able to sit down and put in the final stitches last night. My DH is itching to get started on my frame for this one...and I can't wait to get her up on the wall. 

This is my first official finish of 2012 (and it's already July!!), but once I started this one I found myself dedicating 90% of my stitching time to her. I started around mid-February and have close to 100 hours of stitching in.

So glad she's done! And I'm already thinking about which one on 'The List' I'm going to kit up next, lol!!


  1. Wow, beautiful!! Congrats on your finish, Melody.

    1. Thank you so much! I am a HUGE fan of all of Nora Corbett's designs. There's another one on 'The List' for this year, but something tells me we probably won't see her picture up here before the year is out, LOL.


    So glad you commented today so I could return the follow. Love your stitching and the fact that you care for animals. :)

    1. Thank you for the kind words! Projects like this are my favorite ones to stitch.

      We definitely care for animals, lol. My profile pic is our Saint Bernard that we rescued 3 years ago following a major surgery on his hip. We're also home to a shelter-rescued cat and 2 off-the-street rescued kittens :)

  3. She is beautiful. Congrats on your finish. I love her colors the purple and yellow - gold. So pretty. I so admire anyone who can handle those tiny beads... Awesome

    1. Thanks, Melinda! The colors are what drew me to her in the first place. They are wonderful together :)

      The beads? Now that's another story entirely, LOL!

  4. Congratulations she's gorgeous and would look great on any wall!
