A finished tabletopper and random thoughts

Hello..I think winter may just be about over.  The sun is out, about time.  It feels warmer out that it has been in a long time.  I think I just may have to go for a walk, and if Buddy behaves and stays out of my way while I try to pick up the house and run the vacuum..that word confuses me..spell check says this is the correct spelling..hmm any way I might take him with me.  For my new followers or those that just popped in Buddy is my dog..a 100+ pound German Shepard ..and the vet says he is underweight...and a big ball of hair...he is the reason I have to pull out the vacuum cleaner as often as I do..

I finished a PK (patricia kristoffersen) tabletopper pattern.  It is a swirl pattern..also a thread eater...but well worth it...and that is why I am posting today and not on Monday..figured I was just sitting here drinking my tea, might as well do a blog.  I couldn't sleep last night..last time I looked at the clock it was after 3 am..so I got up, wandered around the house, got a drink of water..and wandered back to bed...and fell asleep..note to self..do not take sudafed at bedtime..your eyes will not stay closed...so at 11 today I woke up..the dog is pacing and whining..and there is alot of light coming in through the skylight...I had to squint my eyes shut..I felt like I had been on a drinking binge..and I haven't done that since my early 20's..ok..I don't know why I went there..can't remember ..oh because I am drinking my first cup of tea at 11:30!!!! I haven't had breakfast and now it is lunchtime...well almost...yikes...

Back to the finished project..yeah..I am ADD and I think you are seeing how my mind works...here are the pics of the tabletopper..you can find the pattern in Esquiste Tabletoppers..a leisure arts publicatin...the name of the pattern is Swirl...I use DMC CEBELIA thread which you can find in my shop.  The color is #712 I call it cream and it is a very pretty color.. and this tabletopper is listed in my shop  www.etsy.com/shop/byhooks4u

Wow it's awesome! I'm tempted to make it. How many balls did it take to finish?

The table topper is exquisite Vicki. Sudafed does that to me too, I can't sleep and when I do I have very weird dreams.
Hugs to you,

Gorgeous! I love how intricate the center is, even when the swirl is so eye-catching!

Yes, spring may be coming! Yay!!! Not sleeping well here, either...is it weather change or sinus-pressure related? Ugh. Looking forward to warmer weather, but not the headaches of changing season.

Truly exquisite table topper. Love the swirling pattern. It must have taken a lot of patience and I am sure a lot of thread too!
Have a lovely day.
