Mom, if you are reading this,
please go away
for a few more days!
Here is where I'm at today. The design has only minimal backstitching so I should be able to finish the stitching tonight or tomorrow. Then, to assemble the pinkeep. I'll post a completed project picture when I'm finished.
Thanks for all the great comments! I've been really chuffed to post and itching to stitch the past few days and I'm sure it's because of your wonderful support.
