The Dance It Is Happy!

Come happy dance with me! I have managed to finish pages three and four of Oriental Courage Storykeep and have hit the halfway mark! I have been stitching on this off and on for the last year. For whatever reason, I just decided I HAD to knuckle down and finish these two pages up. I stitched all the confetti stitches first, then just did the fill in with the 817. I put the last of the 817 stitches in during a Hercule Poirot  movie marathon, specifically, Curtain. I must admit, I cried at the end a little as this is the last in the canon and although it's taken 25 years, David Suchet has managed to pull off the impossible. I do like the way he has aged along with Poirot, as I think it lends the series more authenticity. 



Welp, on with the show!
