Wow Wow Wow I Did It

It's just after midnight but I had to share my end of March finish. Yes despite having a crisis and losing my mojo for a week or so I have finished Queen of the Needle by Just Nan on target. Thank you so much Sally for helping me to keep focused and encouraging me with this. I have made several changes, well I always do lol. The most obvious is the white lace perle work is now lavender and though it is not so noticeable i also changed the beads to match. I missed some of the beads in the body of the work out. The lavender beads I chose for their colour but they were a little larger than the white supplied with the charm so they looked bulky especially on the strawberry flowers, so i just did and extra little cross stitch where they should have gone. I am thrilled with the results and feel it was well worth the effort of frogging those top two corners to change the colour.

Right I am off to bed now before my hubby divorces me lol.

Do you still have the chart for Queen of the Needle. I love this piece. I also love the one you did of Ink Circles. Things have been really tough here with my husband loosing his job last year and all...I can't afford to by Just Nan patterns like this. I don't know how much your Ink Circle was but...if you are done with your charts can I buy them from you? My email address is
