I DIDDIT !!!!!
Hopping up and down. Excited . Manic !!! Did you hear that big big shout in Amsterdam? Well, that was just me.
I finally made it, this afternoon the last stitch went into the big Bugger of a Boria 1029, and unless I have forgotten a stitch, they were 242,653 stitches altogether . Sigh.
I needed two years to get it done ( witha RL job, of course ), and I assure you it is not for the faint hearted :-) Several times I thought this thing would beat me .
Last month, though, I finished the last motive in the corner and afterwards I filled up the background. Now look how we did that...
Of course, as you can see, it still needs some blocking before I can finish it.
A big thank you to the members of PetitPointers, the Yahoogroup, who have given me lots of encouragement and cheered me all the way through, while I was whining big time :-)
