Second Finish For 2012

I'm SO excited to finally have this project completed! I never thought it would see the light of day again so it was a good thing that Junior decided to make an appearance ;o) LOL!

This is Noah's Crew by Imaginating -

As I stated before, I changed the colors of the curtain and Noah's robe to match the colors of the nursery. I used DMC 3018 and 3865 along with white. Noah's scarf changed color too to match his new robe. The background was supposed to be red but I just reversed the piece of matting so the white became the new backdrop. I'm very happy with the results -

Once I got working on this again, and I'm not a perforated paper stitcher, I really did enjoy it! All the animals seemed to have their own little personalities :o)

This crew even has a monkey -

I'm not sure where I'll display this piece but for now it's on top of the dresser. I know you are all anxious to see pictures of the nursery but it's not ready for reveal just yet. I 'will' give you a sneak peak of the colors being used and the striping on the walls -

How's that for a tease? LOL! Hopefully it won't be too much longer and I'll show you what Junior's new room will look like ;o)

I want to thank everyone for their absolutely wonderful comments and to welcome some new Pumpkin Stalkers :o) I truly enjoy reading everything you write and I'm trying my best to reply to everyone that I can.

Beautiful job. Turned out great. Can't wait to see the rest of his room.♥

Noah and friends looks great! And you are looking great also! The leg pain is pretty normal. My niece's leg swelled up when she was pregnant and it was just from the baby laying on a nerve. Amazing what our bodies can do!

EEK I somehow missed your last post! You look great. I was as big as a house by then. I know you will be so thankful for that HE washer & dryer set you bought a while back.

The Noah's ark is so adorable! What a wonderful finish. Thank you so much for the sneak peek at the room. I ADORE the color scheme but then my favorite color is brown so I might be biased. lol

Sharon said...
