Let the Bells Ring and the Banners Fly!

I loved seeing this cartoon when I was younger. My little brother and I would run all over the house repeating it, "I'm here, let the bells ring out and the banners fly!".

It seemed the best way to announce I finished the page!! I'm very excited to have finished my first ever page on an HAED. I have 6(?) WIPs that are HAEDs and this is the first page finish. Here it is!

Page 3 complete out of 8, 3 are full, 3 mostly full and 2 that are a column and a half. 

And I love it! I wish I could keep on with this one, especially to finish the far right side, but I must get cracking on Totally Nuts for my friend. 

It hasn't been touched since the DUCJFC and it looked like this:

It should be a quick finish to stitch and then it's attempting my very first needle book! Again, I will rely on your encouragement and tips to help me finish it up well. 

Thank you again for all your comments on Mini Winter Magic! It really helped. 

Happy Stitching,

  2. I still say "Three Cheers and a Tiger for me! (from the same cartoon)" Great job on the page finish!
