Coaster #4 Is Finished!

Goodness I am finally finished with the 4th and last Coaster.."The Tree"..
I have been ill all week, lost my voice and then again of course the migraine (lucky not so severe).. I could only do a few stitches each day and then the eyes would throb, the head would start to split and I knew it was time to quit.
However, I persisted a little each day and the payoff was great... "The Tree" is now done and it will join "Santa, Snowman and The Ornament" hip hip I changed the design a bit.. I added two presents and made a string of gold garland and added some purple iridescent beads.. it really looks better up close with the flash.. you can click the image and see it much better if you like.

Designer: Unknown (came with coasters)
Stitched: On 16ct White Aida
Floss: DMC recommended colores
Kreinik Gold Metallic Blending Filament
Additions: 00252 Mill Hill Beads and added 2 gifts to design.
Started: 10-20-08
Finished: 11-21-08
The bears who reside on the loveseat insisted the should be included.. it is after all their home.
This was a fun project and I really enjoyed it, just life's interruptions insisted on delaying their debut.. My dh is really happy that I finished since he has seen so many WIP's (since my illness) that he was beginning to think I had turned into a starter not a finisher.
Now I will start a few new projects, one is for my kids and another for my dh..
Need to gather my materials and will probably start on the weekend...

Tonight is Friday SAT so I will be working on Witchy Poo and progress since last Friday but tonight should be good, I am feeling better...

Thank you for stopping by and please leave a comment, remember they are the footprints of where you have been.. and I love them.
