update - Lion king finished!!!

Yay!!! I`ve done it! The saga which started exactly 3 weeks and 17620 stitches ago, has finally ended this morning when I stitched the last whisker on my lion! Here he is:


It`s beautiful, isn`t it? And I had the perfect frame for it, too:


So that`s that, now I can concentrate on the Celtic chessboard I also started a few days ago - I won`t attach a picture here just yet, let it be a surprise. On the other hand, I`ve got some pics of the other wee stuff I`ve been making during the past week, in between lion stitching sessions:

5 Sets of Matching Greeting Card + Bookmark + Gift Tag

My Valentine-themed toiletry bags still need some finishing touches but the Christmas decorations are ready to go - I`m especially pleased with the 3 snow "globes" (=stars), I think they turned out rather cute. And now, back to work because I really, REALLY want to finish this chessboard before the Festival. Wish me luck!

  2. Thanks, Woolly Brew, a.k.a Karen - I will bring it along, although everybody`ll be able to see it this weekend (until someone buys it, that is... ha! Here`s for wishful thinking!). Anyway, I don`t think I`d mind too much if it stayed on MY wall...
