Yes, it's done. After 3 1/2 years, Knotgarden is DONE! Though there must have been a year in there it didn't get worked on because it sure felt like only 2 1/2 years from start to finish :( Without further ado, here's the whole thing:
And then here are a couple of shots of the beads - which of course do not photograph nearly as nicely as they actually appear:
Good thing this was a holiday weekend, because it literally took every minute I had to get it done, though I did ALL of the remaining beading Sunday afternoon & evening. Of course, if I hadn't had all of the Christmas decorations to put out, and running around Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, I would have been done sooner, but I guess these other things have to get done, too...
And yes, that is all I worked on for the week, so poor Yellow Santa did not even peek out of his bag, let alone get a stitch in. We'll see what happens on him this week. I WILL put time in on Anne's London, finally - it's been waiting not-so-patiently on the dining room table for WEEKS now. And then, my remaining goals for the year are to finish the Birds of a Feather SAL, and Tree of Stitches, which ought to be doable, assuming Christmas Crazies don't interfere too much :) Or this big pile of beads, some of which are for a far-distant Chatelaine, and others for some jewelry:
Now, if you've been following along, you might have seen me post a few new albums to the Multiply pages, like one for Tuscany Town, and Growth Rings. So you might gather from that that I'll have some new starts coming up. You'll just have to check back after the new year to see, but I can safely say that finishing TWO Chatelaines in one year - which either equals or tops finishing two TWs in one year - deserves a bit of startitis, IMO :)
Happy Stitching this week to everyone!!
