I'm at 10:32 am EST as I type this and the contest is officially closed. :D For the record, I've taken a screenshot of the last entry by Rahenna.
Through this process, I've discovered that I don't like having to keep tabs on my stitching time. :) It made me antsy to know that time was tick-tocking away and I felt like I should hurry along. Do those of you who keep a lot of your stitching hours feel the same way?
Without further ado, here are the pics taken when the last bead was stitched last night. I diligently took pictures of the time log and WIP every night (They were housed in a locked album in Picasa for the duration.) and they can be FOUND HERE.
I looked through your guesses right after a took a screenshot of Rahenna's comment and GUESS WHAT, RAHENNA??? YOU'RE IT at 29:30:00!!! Maybe we should have a new saying about the late worm, huh? LOL!!! A 123stitch GC will be on it's merry way to you shortly. :D
Here are better pics of Orchid that I took this morning, more close ups can be found in the link in the third paragragh. I couldn't be more pleased with how she turned out. I hope my friend will love her, if not, I have just the spot for her. ;)
