While I love stitching, thinking up new ideas for stitching, none of this is quite as satisfying as seeing projects end up in their home.
After sorting some pieces for the A&P show (which is here in Oamaru on the 27th & 28th of February) I was down to just two pieces I had completed last year left to find something to do with. Then it dawned on me that one of those will look prefect on my new sewing box 🙂 hurrah! I don’t have to make a bag for it!
Today I finally finished all the cross stitches on this project.
While doing the last bit of base, I worked out I can cross stitch at a rate of 300 stitches an hour, so given the thread count this so far should have taken 57hours. And now for all the back stitching & French knots to complete.
