The End of a Love Affair!

And I couldn't be any happier!!! 1 year and 10 months of love-hate relationship and it all resulted to todays sweet goodbye... sweet goodbye to all the frustrations it had caused me to be exact!!! But I am happy, no tears here. oh no no no!!! It's so beautiful and I love it to bits. I thought at one point i was so tired of it that I wanted to just give it away once it's finished, but i changed my mind when i saw it done, and the two lucky people who's names are stitched onto this piece are the lucky recepient of this beautiful finish **ahem**


Are you ready???

This has got to be one of my favorite finishes. Because I love my conversion LOL (see original here). I also went with my previous plans, like her necklace, thank God it doesn't look like an inverted cross like in the original LOL, I gave her a choker with a single bead dangling (sorta). That scarf-like whatevs that was hanging from her shoulders had been chopped off. And the darker shades in her dress are in greys because I didn't want her to look like she is wearing a scrap of the same material as the prince's cape. I also added some words, to make it more wedding sampler-ish like. Just dropping the names and date in there would'a been boring as hell, wouldn't you agree?

Now I don't know when this will be framed, but I gotta find something nice and perfect for it, but ho hum, I am not even sure I can do it soon because the apartment we live in right now wouldn't allow nails bigger than a pin, i mean really! It pisses me off to no end! That i haven't even bothered fixing my other one that their damn wall dropped and broke!

So yeah, I think I am set for another crap hahaha! I am not sure what to do next yet, but I have yet to finish my last square for Cole's quilt and then i will have to decide, perhaps a smallish one, just for a quick kiss on thyself by myself.

Thanks for viewing and I hope you liked what you see, as you had been so very patient with me all this years listening to me crap and crap and crap about this piece.

I need to go review for my drivers written exam this afternoon. Wish me luck! After almost 5 years of living in the US i finally decided to go sit me arse and take the exam. wOOt!? wOOt!?

Have a nice weekend everybody!
