The Grand Finale

  I put the last stitches into AW 1662 on Sunday night.  Actually, I was doing that last stitching while watching Downton so that slowed me down a bit!!  But I was not going to bed until I had this one wrapped up. And she turned out to be quite the beauty!!


   Once I got her unrolled, I was a little surprised by how long she was!  I know, I cut the linen, but that was a while ago and I hadn't seen her whole length since then.


Love these colors!!


The eye is still drawn to that checkerboard pattern!

That last floral band is such a stunner!

   Such a fun stitch and now to decide what to insert in her place in the rotation!  I have gone back to the SAL rotation for the time being so I have some time yet to figure it out.  I think I have decided to try to finish Ann Bowers during the Olympics.  I thought I might start a new piece but I have SO MANY UFOs that I think I need to keep working them until the pull of a new start gets too strong!

  3. Congratulations, Laura! Such a beautiful finish.
    I'm already very curious to see the UFO or new start you will choose to fill the gap in your rotation.
