Side One...DONE!

I guess you could say that I'm doing a HHD!!!! That's a half happy dance for those that didn't get it ;o) LOL! Last night I put on the last of the beads to side one of Sabrina. What a great feeling!

Technically, based on the center of the pattern, I'm half done :o) I imagine it will get a little tough once I dive back into her because it's basically all the same colors and A LOT of beading. Oye! There are a lot of white blocks and teeny tiny black beads. It might send me over the edge... Okay, I might go over the edge 'a little further'!

I've decided to take a short break from Sabrina and stitch up A Bunny For Baby. That definitely won't take long so I might slip another project in there as well. We'll see what happens ;o)

I've got the sewing bug again but I just haven't had the heart to tackle that stupid sewing machine :o( With the warmer weather coming on, the basement isn't as cold so I just need to pump myself up, dive in and just go for it. The worst that could happen is that the sewing machine would be pitched out the tiny basement window...

She's looking more beautiful with every stitch. But I think breaking for a shorter cute project or a sewing project is a definite necessity on a design like this so you don't lose motivation.

Sabrina is looking so good. I don't think I could tackle all the white let alone the beads. You are doing a great job !

she's looking beautiful Cathey! I figured out I have to turn my firewall off to see your photos. Weird huh? Sorry I didn't email you when you asked, I tried but my outlook isn't set up properly. *sigh* computers, computers.
Good luck with the rest of Sabrina!

Sabrina is just so pretty, Cathey! I've really enjoyed watching your progress on her and it seems to me like she's gone pretty quickly. I'm sure it doesn't seem that way to you! Great job!!!

You are such an organized stitcher. She looks lovely. I am normally all over the place with a large project. Congrats. Can't wait to see more.

Karen said...

wow she is lovely

Carol said...

Breathtaking! Good for you for taking a break and working on a small finish--that is the only way I could keep focused on such an intricate project as Sabrina. Can't wait to see your bunny stitched up, Cathey...

Little Cat said...

Cathey, she is gorgeous. Totally gorgeous! I have her all kitted up and you are so making me want to pull her out and start her myself right NOW!

Your poor sewing machine....whatever did she do to deserve the threat of physical violence? lol

My basement is my refuge in the super hot days. The older I get the less tolerance I have for extreme heat. If only there was more natural light. I only come upstairs to see what outside looks like!

Great job on Sabrina!
