The first of the 15 is finished

I will update this post with a photo later today.

I finished "A Nuisance of Cats" last night. My mom brought my kitted-up WIP over to the theatre for me yesterday afternoon, and I managed to get it finished. Yesterday was "Day O' Finishes," I guess, because the 2010 season at the theatre ended too. I have never been so glad to see a show close as I was to see "Annie" done. It's been a long 8-week run. Two extensions, overflow seating, having to turn people away and I was there for most of it. It was a good show, and I'm so honored people made the theatre part of their holiday celebrations this year, but I'm glad it's over. We start up again next month, but at least it's a few weeks of rest.

I rotated Sheepish Designs' Betsy into my stitching pile after I finished the cat piece. I'd like to get her done by the end of the month. She's exactly halfway finished, and I think I might even have a frame to fit. Michaels had some custom frames on clearance when I went in on Saturday, and I bought two long skinny rectangular frames for $8 each. Even though my LNS charges $10 extra to frame something in a frame you bought elsewhere, it's still a bargain if the stitching fits in the frame. I couldn't leave them there, could I? I know, somewhere in the vast treasure trove of my stash, I have something that will fit in those frames, even if Betsy and her sheep (and yes, I consider this a patriotic sheep chart--there are sheep, and there is an American flag. This is my requirement.) don't.

Good for you for finishing one of your 15 challenge pieces ... may the rest fall into place just as neatly.

In answer to your question on my blog, I started The Ice Dragon's Kingdom on bottom left of the border and moved across the bottom to the right.

Well done on the finish, not sure when my first one for the year will be :)
