Update on Alpine Garden

IT'S DONE....IT'S DONE....IT'S DONE. The stitching is...not the beading though. But for now I don't care...I'm too busy here with my happy dance. All stitching done. Right now I'm sooooo happy that I "finished" it. Tomorrow the truth will hit me probably that this piece is far from finished, but today I don't go there. Today it feels as if I have finished "something".

Alpine Garden - all stitching done

Besides, at the moment I don't want even to try to figure out how long it will take to put 1556 beads and couple of swarovski chrystals on it. It sounds a lot. I'll see how it goes. Can't hide from that anyway if I want to get this piece over and done with.

Ohh...and the picture looks a bit crook because it's hanging on the floor frame and the heater started to blow. (meaning I didn't have the patience to wait until the heater was done)

Happy dancing with you!! Is this your first Chatelaine finish?? I can't wait to be done with Tuscany. I have been beading as I go, so I just need to put the crystals on when I am done. I can't believe you were working on 2 Chatelaine pieces at the same time! Looking forward to the *final* photo!!!

Cynthia said...

I "just" bought this pattern, after drooling on it for forever at the LNS. It will be my first Chatelaine. Cant wait to see yours with the beads on!! Beautiful!!
