HUGE Happy Dance!!!!!!!!


woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had set a goal of the end of March for finishing my Christmas Village. A couple people commented & or emailed me saying that they thought I could finish it by this weekend. Well, that was all the challenge I needed!!!!!! I have worked on this every spare moment I could. This was all with babysitting all 5 days this week!!!! And..with helping my husband today....he is making a new bed for us.!
So, to have it finished on Sat. evening is a HUGE thrill for me!!!!!
I have never had a project take as long as this one. The main reason it took so long is the bands of white. I would just talk myself out of working on this & do something else. I finally decided to get serious after Christmas & get it done!!!!!
So, here in all her glory, I present a finished Christmas Village by Victoria Sampler!
Thanks for stopping by & all your kind comments!!
