Overly optimistic

So, you know how in my last post I said that I thought that Andromeda would take a couple of weeks to finish? Turns out that there was quite a bit more stitching to her than I thought! But I continued to take a picture at the end of every day, and yesterday afternoon I finally finished her, so here are the remaining pictures of the journey.

And finally, the finished piece:

My sweet husband gave me a gift certificate to my framer for Christmas (they know him by name when he comes in now!), so I think I'll try to take this over this week and get the process going; she's too pretty to leave in the "finished" bin.

Now I'm off to get some housework done, and then I need to get back to the Rosewood Manor model. There have also been two parts released in the two SALs I'm participating in, but they'll have to wait until I can make some good progress on the model--if only there were more hours in a day!

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
