IHSW results

Well, I had a crazy weekend, but I did find some time to work on Ascendant, which made me very happy! I tried very hard, but I just barely missed out on a page finish, only have a wee bit down in the bottom right column to do. It's hard to see what I did, as this page has an amazing amount of bright white stitching, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel...after 2 more columns worth of stitching, I will be at her head! I can't wait, and I will be working extra hard on it in the next couple of days so you guys can share my happy dance when I get there!


Also, here is my TUSAL post for April, lots of ORT's this month with "Grapes of Wrath" getting finished up.


Just also wanted to say a big welcome to my new followers and thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments on my big finish. My best friend was so excited when I dropped it off that she grabbed her keys, kicked me out of her house, and took it right to the framers! Hopefully when it gets back in the next few weeks I will get some piccys of it all framed up.

Hope everyone had a great stitchy weekend, I am off to check out all your new posts and pics!

Hugs,
Nikki

Ascendant is really coming on, I can just make out that brilliant white.

I'm glad that your friend loved her present and I'm looking forward to seeing the framed picture.

Well done :)
