Lets Dance...

Ballet shoes, tap dancing shoes, river dancing clogs or even barefoot dancing around your handbag, (i'm sure you all remember doing that in the 1970/80's discos) in fact any type of dancing you like.... please join me in my happy dance as i put the final stitch into Grand Marquoir last night, a long time since it was started way back 10th March 2010. I'm so thrilled with this project and will miss stitching on it.

As i mentioned before i did keep track of the DMC colours that were used for each square.

Each square is a different colour with the exception of the 2 parts of the sampler on the 1st/2nd row (they are the same colour) and also the sampler to the left on the bottom 2 rows (they are the same colour). The 2 parts to the heart/date bottom left and right are also the same colour.

If you'd like a grid of the colours i used please email me and put Grand Marquoir in the title and i'll happily send you a copy.

DD's scan went well, baby is growing perfectly and has all it's little bits in the right places.

She thanks you all for your good wishes and is still at home resting and taking it easy.

Time for a cuppa and a sit down after all that happy dancing. thanks for joining me, we must have burnt off lots of calories LOL
