By The Bay "Thirteenth Colony"....

So excited to share this finish.....
By the Bay's "Thirteenth Colony"
parts 1,2 & 3 stitched as one.
I started this one back in early 2013 and I
can remember then the feeling that it
would take forever to stitch this.
I stitched on it here and there as the
mood hit me but something clicked
last month to get this one finished.

Parts 1, 2 & 3
Stitched on 40ct Lakeside Linen with recommended DMC
I decided I really wanted to finish this one
by the end of the month and with only had
Part 1 left to stitch it was definitely doable.  
Of course, I completely lost interest in stitching
it after making that decision.  Figures....
I made myself trudge on and, after some
marathon stitching the last few days, I put
the last stitch in this afternoon.

By the Bay "Thirteenth Colony Part 1"

I started in the lower right corner so I basically
stitched it "backwards" from right to left. 
Part 1 was the last one for me to stitch. 
Love the little sheep and houses.

Love the trees in this one....
they reminded me of butter beans.

Two of my favorite parts of the piece...
love this little island....

Love the little house with sheep.....

I did joke with hubby that this one had on
specialty thread in it....
"Hair of Black Cat"
.... especially the last part.
My cat couldn't resist sitting in my lap
while stitching so I spent a lot of time
pulling out little strands of cat hair. 
Guess it could have been worse.

a great stitching weekend. 
Now I am off to find something
small to stitch.....
