Finally finished

It's been a busy week around here again... On Tuesday I popped down to Birmingham and stayed with Margaret. I took with me everything to make the 2010 ornament that matches the one I just finished (yes Karen, it's on my to do list!!), but didn't even open the bag! Wednesday morning I picked up a colleague from Canada at the Uni, and for the rest of the week we worked on a paper. So no stitching time until Friday. And at that point I shocked Eddy as I was too tired! He did wonder what the body snatchers had done with me ;)

Anyway, yesterday I forced myself to pick up Wild Thyme Fairy again. And once I'd got a couple of lengths in, I was quite enjoying it... and a little after midnight I finished it!

Today I picked up a New Beginning again... I'll post a progress picture in the week (I hope!)

Happy stitching!

I love the fairy! I'd be interested to hear what it was like to stitch as it looks like it has fearsomely difficult backstitch..
