It's not quite a happy dance yet, because there is still a series of borders that must be stitched to even out the edges--but all the motifs on In the Mood Red are stitched.
It has been entertaining to stitch, but I'm not quite sure what I will do with either this project (when the borders are completed) or the companion piece I finished last year. Our home tends to the traditional rather than the contemporary, and I lean towards hanging samplers on the wall. I do have some geometrics framed and hanging, but they tend to be more understated. At the same time, I really like some of the patterns and textures created by the stitches and colors in both In the Mood designs.
Dearly Beloved just put this all into perspective. "Where," he just asked, "do we have a space to hang anything else?"
I think that just answered the question.
