So excited

Ok I know I should really just wait until this is fully done but I'm just so excited and happy to be nearly there, I just had to share this with all of you.

The Dreamer by Mirabilia is almost finished. Just a little cluster of flowers and a small amount of back stitching left and she will be completed.

I figured out why I was having such a hard time with this one. I was getting stressed about finishing it. It was no longer about stitching but about getting it finished after all this time. I was getting so stressed about it that it sucked all the enjoyment out of stitching it, so yesterday I decided that I would just enjoy laying down the stitches and just not be concerned about getting it finished. What do you know I ended up getting more done in it.

So here she is, so close to the finish:

The picture of the completed piece will be better, I promise. I find it difficult to get a good photo of this as it is quite big and also my house doesn't get a huge amount of natural light.

  1. She is so beautiful! I feel sorry for Nora sometimes, her designs are gorgeous but the photos used on her charts are so bad they could actually deter some stitchers from buying them.
    Anyway, congrats on the near finish, you're doing great!
