Cross Stitch, Finishes, Stitch-alongs

Bless being bunged-up with a head cold!

‘Cos it meant taking an extra day off work today so I put the final stitches into Bordeaux.  Thanks to my SAL buddy Carol for getting me started on this journey … it’s been a fun ride, and it looks great all finished (photos in no way do it justice at all).  It’s quite a long piece, with the stitching measuring 19cm wide by 49cm long.
