IT'S DONE!!!! IT'S DONE!!! EDITED

I was going to try and wait until the official WIPocalypse post to announce and show this, but I just couldn't wait!!!!   Yep, Peaceable Kingdom is finished!! I believe that I started the project sometime in the latter part of 2000, put it down for a couple years, picked it up for a couple months, and then put it down for a long while.  At one point, I came close to throwing it out because I didn't believe that I could ever finish it.  Boy, am I glad I didn't do that!  So without further ado here it is:
<><><><> <><><><> <><><><>
Peaceable Kingdom
Started 2000
Finished 3-4-2012


I know that you all will be as happy as me not to hear me whine about never getting this piece done - LOL!  I really do appreciate all of the positive reinforcement you gave me.  It really did help motivate me to get this done.  Now, I am off to my craft room to find a NEW start for a reward to me! It is going to be one of the new Prairie Schooler Easter Bunnies - I can't wait!!!

I thought that I would add a picture of the little ornament that I got to start this week.  I hope  to finish and finish it this weekend!








Again, thank you all so much for visiting my blog and for all your wonderful comments, they mean so much to me.  Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!!!!
