Get Out Your Shoes!

Your Dancing Shoes! That's right it's time to celebrate! I have officially FINISHED! (Well, on Saturday, but who's counting!)

I'm done, caput, finito! It was sort of an anti-climatic finish, as they often are, but it was nice to be done. As soon as I was done I took pictures, sighed with relief and made Greg help me clean up all the thread mess that I created these last 6 months. LOL, LOL

It's so weird to see all the blocks filled in... And as I predicted this last block was just easy, I could've finished sooner if I had taken the time to do it. But things like, oh work, got in the way. LOL

We had a busy weekend, we decided over Xmas to get some new book shelves for all our sundry collections and they were delivered on Saturday and well as a cable upgrade, both about the same time. It was busy at our place for a while. LOL

Anyway I just wanted to show off our snazzy new bookcases that *match* our old computer cabinet. Which now has an honest to goodness working computer in it. LOL For months that computer cabinet had our old non-working computer in it and was just a junk catcher. Now it is actually functional.

Despite the bookcases being a bit bigger than the old shelves they aren't as deep so it seems more spacious back there. :)

Well hope y'all are having a great week! Let's hope for no snow!

I'm dancing so much that I'm out of breath! Whew! Do you think I can log that as 30 mins. of exercise so I can get an extra WW point? LOL!

What a fantastic finish, it looks great. Your new shelves look really nice too, what a great weekend you've had. So, now that Houses is done, what is your next stitching focus?

Oh wow, great finish! I knew it was coming, but it still surprised me. :) I love your new bookcases, too! We're actually having one delivered tomorrow, after waiting a month and a half. I like the look of yours, especially with your computer desk.

What a gorgeous finish, congratulations!

So, it's a typical case of 'I don't feel like dancing', now that the HoHRH are finished? I know exactly what you mean with anti-climactic finishes. But once you've got it framed and you look at it every day, you'll see you'll be SO proud and SO amazed that you did all that.
And may I say that it looks breath-taking. You have such stamina, to work on this for six whole months until it was finished! Wow!

Finished at last! Happy Happy Dance! Well done, Kim! That was a real challenge, and you've been definitely up to the task! I'm so so happy and proud for you! Now, I'm looking forward to seeing that frame of yours (wink)...
Great matching job with the shelves and all... Does the working computer mean that some guy named Greg might tell us Smiley Cup stories some time soon?
Lots of hugs to you two!
