Happy Dance - A Spot of Tea

Started: Somewhere around 2000
Added to Rotation: 3/20/2016
Finished: 4/17/2016
Cherished Teddies for All Occasions

This was stitched on 14-count white Aida with DMC floss.

I believe I started stitching it sometime in the late 1990's or early 2000's for AQP (Angel Quilt Project) using a chart provided by the designer.  I don't know what happened to the chart, but somewhere along the way, I replaced it with the chart from the Cherished Teddies for All Seasons booklet.  The colors on the finished square are different from  the chart in the booklet, namely the purples were done in salmon pinks in the book.  I also made several unintentional customizations to fix counting mistakes made in the earlier stitching.

This was the first project I picked up as part of my focus on finishing UFO's and WIP's by choosing to first one on my UFO/WIP spreadsheet and working on it for 1/2 hour a day until finished.  It's the second UFO Finish and the 14th overall finish for this year.  

I will be sending it to WOCS (World of Charity Stitching) for their Mixed Bag.  Hopefully, it can be made into a pillow or something.

  1. Wonderful finish! Isn't it amazing what 1/2 hour can do? Can't wait to see what comes out next.

  2. Wow, it's already finished. It's great to see what you can do when you focus on something, like finishing some UFOs.
