It stayed in a basket with other ufos and for the last couple of summer holidays I've got it out and considered finishing it. Then it would go back cause I just couldn't come up with an acceptable solution. Till a few weeks ago when I decided to have another go. I unpicked the top and ditched the prairie points. Because the embroidery was crooked I stitched the ric rac around the edges to cover them up. Then sewed the buttons in the corners to cover the ric rac corners. I'm really pleased to have it finished and will be happy to use it now.
My mother has a bit of a scissor obsession and I've been the lucky recipient of all those lovely little scissors with the little embroidered fobs - all made by her.
So my finishes so far are 3 pincushions in January, the needlecase in February, maybe a quilt by the end of March? I haven't been doing a lot the last couple of weeks, its been so hot I struggle to stay motivated. We've had 2 weeks of 30+ weather, I've had enough. It has been raining a tiny bit tonight but I'm sure all it's going to do is increase the humidity.
I had some trouble loading the photos on tonight so I hope they are clear enough. I'm not going to push my luck any further tonight.
