a finish and a new start

I finished Halloween Fairy tonight. I had it finished a week ago except for one color of the beads. So a friend picked them up for me and mailed them. I received them today and couldn't wait to finish this piece. I started it in July last year.
This past Sunday I started the LK Boo Flip Its. I will be stitching on this every Sunday til it is done.

what a wonderful job! where do you find these patterns? do you make your own or buy kits? i would love to do one if i could find a kit. i make a lot of red meat here but i don't eat much of it. my son and his girlfriend are big meat eaters so a lot goes to them. my daughter's boyfriend is all about beef, so he gets a lot too. and the wicked mother in law eats like a trucker. haha!

LOVE your fairy!! I have this as a WIP and really need to get her finished. Then again, I also have Boo Club as a WIP and should finish it as well. ;)

I like your Boo!! I'm stitching it myself right now, it's lovely to work on it, not difficult so nice to combine with the television in the evening

Shelleen, this is the first one that I have seen completely finished, and I am head over heels in love with it! Your consistently excellent stitching is perfect for this intricate, delightful pattern.

And since I'm reading these in reverse order, now I can see when you started Boo, and how fast you are progressing! Once again, I'm envious! lol
