Not just any update either, I have a finish to share with you! Not a finish of the wedding sampler, as it probably should be but it is still one of my 2013 goals so I am happy, and at least I can say I am prepared for Christmas this year.
Yes, I said the "C" word!
Here is what it looked like the last time you saw it, back in May!
Here it is now, all the stitching done and beads added ready to hang on the tree in December!

Its not perfect, but its mine and I am happy with it. This was my first time using 28ct evenweave and I didn't have too many issues. It was my first time beading too, and although it was time consuming I think the final effect is worth it.
I tweaked the finishing a little, I made the fringing at the bottom a little shorter, and added only three rather than five as I thought three was enough. I suspect with two kitties around the house it won't last very long anyway if they get their little furry paws on to it!
Now this is complete it will be back to the wedding sampler as I am becoming more and more aware the deadline is getting closer and closer, I should really start looking for an outfit too!
Have a happy Sunday everyone!
