Well thanks to our lovely long Jubilee weekend I've got plenty of stitching complete. I'll admit I have been slacking a bit to get it done, once all the cross stitch was complete I really struggled to get in the right frame of mind to do the back stitch. I HATE backstitching.
But it is done and in a few weeks the recipients will finally receive it! Have to say I'm happy with the final look, I just hope they will be too.
If anyone is interested in the pattern it was in issue 180 of World of Cross Stitching, and as it happens my first stitch that wasn't a kit.
Next up I am stitching some Sea Babies squares for a charity group I am a member of on Facebook (can be found here), they make quilts for sick babies in the UK and abroad, I've promised 4 squares so far, and intend to do more, but not until I have these done first - my to do list is long enough as it is!
