A feeling of accomplishment..

I am so chuffed! (love that word, always wanted to use it! lol)  But seriously, I am! Tonight I did a method of finishing I have never done before and it turned out great.. and I only needed a wee bit of help from dh. hee hee. Unfortunately I can't elaborate at the moment because the piece was for an exchange - so I have to wait until she gets it, but I am just feeling very excited and a bit proud! :)
On a stitching front - this is what I got done last night-
Yep, just a little. LOL I'm working on Little Christmas by Bent Creek.  I got a late start then got distracted by TV, etc. and that's all I got done. Oh well, it happens.
And now for a picture of Tiny the fish.  He has no other fish to get along with, as Hanna's other fish is a betta also, and bettas do not live well together, or with any other fish for that matter, that I know of anyway. But they sure are pretty and really easy to care for!  Here he is-

This picture doesn't really do him justice- he has pink and blue on his sides that is so pretty- I probably should have waited til the daylight hours to take a picture.   I will try to remember to take one tomorrow morning if I have time.
Well, if I am going to get any stitching done I better get off of here!

Good for you on the finish! I love those tiny pieces over one -- so fun! As for Bettas -- gosh I'd forgotten about them till you mentioned them! We had one or two for a while when my kids were small. Pretty and yes, easy to care for!

Now there you go teasing us! LOL I am looking forward to seeing your finish. Betta fish are so graceful. I had a pair in a 50 gallon community aquarium. They got along with everyone, I just had to be careful about the other fish I put in with them as some fish are prone to nip their fins.
