Ummmmm, he turned 78 December last year. Now you know why this thing is deserving of a drum roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The reason he still didn't get it last birthday is that for the life of me, I could not get the thing straight. I've finally had to give up and get it as close as I can - so just don't look too close. I still love it, but it has been a nightmare. Things like coffee split on it, a broken thread in the linen when I got impatient trying to frog the over one writing, the very existence of all that writing, and I can't forget all the back stitch in the border. But...... it is done. So long as he doesn't wear his glasses when he looks at it!!
Btw, it's a Teresa Wentzler design.
My second finish is this DMC kit Kimono Dolls, waiting to be made into a cushion. It is to have a twin, so I have to start stitching it again when I can find a piece of white aida - a difficult prospect in this house!!! It's using aida again that has me delaying the start, or even the aida hunt. But, it does have to be done cos I am on a deadline with these.
My spider biscornu is finally sewn up, I just have to find a nice button or charm then I will post a pic
