At last she's finished; I put the last stitch in on January 6! As this is a 60th birthday gift for my sister, I inserted '60', '1950-2010', my sister's initials 'ST' and my initials into the spaces provided. I do hope she likes it.
Without this SAL I would never have finished it and, suffice it to say, I will definitely not be stitching the Beatrix Potter Companion piece!
Good luck to those still stitching - if I can do it - you can!
Happy New Year to everyone.
