I started this project one year ago. Every month a new pattern came in the mail. I fell behind, I worked hard and caught up. I worked ahead a little while I waited for the final pattern to arrive. Today, finally, I put the last stitch in and attached all the buttons. Just a little bit of gentle pressing and this will go off to the framers.
I put my initials in one little swirl and the year in another.
I am so happy this is all finished. It took countless hours. Every stitch was made while looking through a magnifier. It's such a relief to be done with all of that kind of concentration. I am ready to work on some other types of things now.
Can't wait to get this framed and up in time for this Christmas season. Happy happy day.
