Mystery XI stitching part finished!



Yes, this afternoon I finished all the stitching on Mystery XI. All I have to do now is the beading, but I think that is still quite a job ;) Anyhow, I'm happy I am this far. I am a little behind on it, it was supposed to be a year's project, and I started with the group on 2008, January 1st.

These last days, all of a sudden Spring arrived! So I have been working on our terrace, cleaning the cobblestones, washing the windows in- and outside, the garden furniture taken out of the shed and putting in some new geraniums in the hanging baskets. Today I had a lovely afternoon, enjoying the fresh green on my terrace (the little tree is bringing me such pleasure every year!) and doing the last stitches on Mystery XI.

Hi Joke! You've been busy! It's gorgeous! And your terrace is beautiful too! I'm glad spring finally arrived for you! I bought the Ink Circles pattern you just started too, but I haven't started it yet, we really do have similar tastes! *Hugs* DJ
