That's beautiful, Christie! You inspire me to finish my Mickey and Minnie that I started 2 years ago. :blush:
Thanks!!!! It's fun, and it's an AWESOME feeling getting it done. The lady at Hobby Lobby talked me up BIG TIME, cause I had it cleaned, pressed, and in the cleaners plastic when I brought it in!! LOL Dh wants to hang it in his office, but I'm not sure about that one!!! Maybe after I show it off here a little more!! :lmao: If you got time, pick yours back up. I enjoy it while I'm watching TV!

It's huge, and the picture is cool, but it really doesn't do it justice!!! this is just an awesome piece, and I'm super glad I stuck with it!!!! so, all you guys working on kits, that are halfway done.....it DOES pay off to finish them!!!

    LOL True, I'm taking it down there this weekend for him to see it, but I think it'll come back with me. GOtta show it off to the family next weekend!! There's a small battle on facebook on where to put it, a friend of mine wants it in her kitchen!!! HAHA Ah well. It'll go somewhere!! Then I'll start the next one! I think the framers picked out an awesome frame, and mat, I had it down to 2 frames, this red one, and a blue one just like it, but we liked the red, and she said the mat would make the Mickey part pop out, and she was RIGHT!! It wasn't that much to frame it either, I heard horror stories from my mother in law, paying like 3 or 4 hundred dollars to get one framed, this one was a little over 100. So not too shabby!!!! Anyways, keep up your good work too, I wanna see pictures of everyone else's work too!!!!!

    oops...have changed that last one now so you can see it!

    puppy love took me about 5 months i think........it's quite an easy one to do, lots of blocks of colour!! quite big though!!

    The Past Present and Forever one is massive......I might do that one next!!

    Love ALL 3 of them!!!! :love: I guess that's why they're all so expensive, is they're so big!! LOL I want to buy self portrait next, before it retires, I'm not too thrilled with any of the others out right now besides that one. Hopefully next week I can start Puppy Love, I can't wait!! Got it sitting here ready to get started by my TV seat LOL

    there isnt anywhere on the internet now that you can see a picture of the retired ones is there.....perhaps i will scan in the ones i have and post them here so people can see what they look like!!

    i think the full list is:
    The Barbershop Quartet
    Self Portrait
    Family Dinner
    Cinderella Castle
    Mickey Salutes
    Preening Pixie
    Happiest Celebration on Earth
    Mickey & Fireman
    Past, Present & Forever
    35th Anniversary
    Tinkerbell Spring Blossoms
    Mistletoe Kiss
    Mikey & Minnie Bride & Groom
    Puppy Love

    the only two i dont have....i think....are mistletoe kiss and preening pixie. i will get around to doing them all eventually!!

    WOW!!!! That's alot of kits!! I just found them a couple of years ago at the parks. I've seen the ones at Hobby Lobby and such, but these from Stony Creek are SOOOO much better!!! I like the Past, Present and Forever too, saw a picture of that one, and would be interested in seeing Happiest Celebration on Earth, and Cinderella Castle also. If you have the patterns scanned, sure, I'll pm you my email addy!!! Thanks!!!!!

    My mother in law was like that too, but her tastes were MUCH different than mine. But, she was much faster in working on them. I sent most of the patterns she had to my sister in law, since they have similar tastes, which is older victorian houses, and such. So not my taste!! I'm more simple....anything disney works for me!! LOL I've seen the Mickey Salutes kit on ebay for like $150!!! Talk about YIKES!!! I should buy them up at the parks before they retire....cause knowing me, I'll probably want them after they retire!!! HAHA

    annette_tr9,

    Are you willing to share any of the charts? You have a few that I am interested in. I just want the charts only as I can go and purchase the thread on my own. I can pay you a small fee if you like. Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Annette, I did get the fireman one thru the email....just gotta download it to the desktop in the spare room, DS is always on that one, I'm always on the laptop in the living room!! HAHA REALLY need to get started on Puppy Love, but want to copy the chart first, or at least scan it in case our puppy eats this one again, I don't have to scramble to find the part I need!!!
