IHSW and a page finish - woop!

I finished the page, and all the evil flowers (well, on this page at least, that's for that Joyze :-) ). Thank you for all your support and encouragement on the flowers, I got there eventually, and I've finished the page as well, which makes me very happy. It's odd, because when you look at this page, you can't really see much or what it is or is going to be, although, as is often the case when I (metaphorically) take a step backwards and see the photograph that I'm posting as opposed to the tiny little bit that I've been working on, I actually start to see the picture develop where I couldn't see it before. I can see her elbow, and that's the first time I've noticed that, despite the fact that that's actually on the page that I finished a few months ago. But this is the first time that I've looked at it as a whole instead of a stitch at a time.
Did you get involved in International Hermit and Stitch Weekend? I didn't do as much as I wanted, but a page finish will do me. What progress did you manage?

Congratulations on finishing a page of your project! It looks like the detail on this is going to be insane- even the flowers look like they could be printed in a magazine as their own motif chart.

Congrats on finishing your page and beating the flowers :) They look wonderful!
I didn't take part in the IHSW, but if it comes again, I will surely be with you :) A weekend dedicated to stitching, what a dream!
I hope the next page will have less flowers for you so you can at least relax a bit and gather some strength for the next amount of little flowers :)

Hugs Yvon.
