Are we ready ??? My first 2008 HD!

I finished it!! Well, except for the beads I ran out of, which is about 1/2 of the purple beading on the urn. I kinda obsessed over it the last coupla weeks, but it was worth it. I started this 05-07 then stopped for about 3 or 4 mths when I didn't work on it at all. So, I figure this baby took me about 4-5 mths to do. Give or take.

Here are my crappy cell phone pics, I'll have a better, finished pic when I deal with my beading. Yanno. ;o) But she's done.



This picture is how I ended up dealing with my name on the ribbon. I tried a coupla different ways but ended up with this one. It seemed best with the curving of the ribbon. I like it, that's what matters ... well, that and I was tired of frogging. heh. (btw, it really isn't as bad as it looks on the fuzzy picture. :o)


So, this chart is up for grabs. Anyone want it? I never, ever wanna look at this thing again. Other than to mail it off anyway.

I haven't decided yet what I'm going to work on now. I have a couple of things that are very close to being finished and I'm not really ... excited ... about a new start as of yet, even with all the things I have kitted up so we'll see.

Looks fab M! Congrats on the finish. Sometimes, when I finish things-I have a hard time getting into something else.
