I finished this last night. I was using a scrap of cord, so I had to make it fit which accounts for why it's all scrunched up on the bottom. Still, better to have it on the tree than in the to-be-finished pile another year. Previously pictured here. Written about here. So there you have it. Ten years start to finish-finish. Perhaps I ought to be more ashamed than I am. (Here's some perspective: I stitched it in two days 11/11/99-11/13/99. D'oh.)
Since I finished this so early in the month, I'm going to call it February's finish and try to get another in...or am I flying too high on wings of pastrami?
