I can’t believe how long it’s taken me to stitch up this little piece – mainly due to numerous attacks of the frogs! If it was my own piece I’d probably have left two of the errors in it, as the larger blue flowers were one stitch out in their placement (I was quite impressed I managed to do that same error in both of them!) … and the border was unpicked three times as I’d managed to get loops and knots in the pearl cotton and not realised … mutter mutter mutter.
Anyway the stitching is finally all done, and all I have to do now is the finishing, which I hope to attempt tomorrow. Then this will be driven back home to The Stitching Post where it will live happily with its owner (I’m stitching this as a model for Karen).
As for the rest of today, it will be spent making a beef stew in the crockpot, along with a big pan full of pumpkin soup ready for the freezer.
