Solo September -- FINISH




A Big Shout Out to Justine and Solo September  I have finished my project.  Started January 2013 in an Ultimate Crazy Cross Stitch Challenge.

This is the first project I have actually added all the beads.  There are 44 little red beads on the trees, 11 beads on the large stars and 2 black beads for eyes.  Now I know this may not seem to a lot of beads, because so many of you amazing stitchers add hundreds of beads, but this was my real first attempt and I am so proud of me.

So excited I was able to Finish this - I know this is a direct result of my commitment to Justine's Solo September (link above). 

I have also finished this with left over September Stitching Time - I am going to try to stitch up a couple little things before October 1.
