UFO Happy Dance

I put the final stitches in Spring Has Sprung this morning. I started this one 2 years ago and it got stuck in the UFO pile for a while so I'm happy to get it done. I love the design but I didn't enjoy all the color changes on the small designs. I'm going to hold off posting a photo until I attach the charms and finish it into a banner sometime this upcoming week. Hopefully I can find time to do that on Monday. Today I'm going to wash and iron it.

While we were waiting for Mike's appointments with the oncologist and cat scan I started the Bleu de Chine Cat Heart for the SAL on StitchNSwapII group. As soon as I have enough done that it will show up well in a photo I'll post one. I'm using Thread Gatherer varigated silk in spring pastel colors on Silkweaver Blueberry hand dyed fabric. I'm not sure I have enough silk so I may have to stitch the cats and mice in a solid color silk. I'm saving them until last to make sure. The varigated silk was one I got from a floss club several years ago so I doubt I could get more of the same dye lot if its still made.

Well done on your UFO happy dance. I should have one too, but I put it away before Christmas to keep it safe and I can't remember where now!!!
