I'm trying to remember when I last worked on it. We've lived in this house for 9 years and it's been up there all that time. My eldest is 10½ and I think I put it away well before she was born. Do you know, it could be as long as 12 years since I stitched on this. Could it be the oldest UFO?
Will I finish it? Well that's a good question. What the photo doesn't show is how badly mottled the fabric is, it was only stored in a carrier bag which broke as DH got it down from the attic. The thing is, I'm loving my cross stitch and don't know if I really want to do crewel work again. Also, I'm not so keen on the design anymore - too cutesey (sp?). Of course, I couldn't possibly throw it out, so for now I think it will just go in my UFO pile and, who knows, maybe it will win a record for the longest WIP ever? lol.
The map is going great guns now, I'll post an updated pic tomorrow.
As for the weekend, well Gemma had her sleepover - four girls in one room, not a lot of sleeping went on! Plenty of giggling, but not much sleeping. Then on Sunday we went to my three year old niece's birthday party (give me for 8 year olds anyday!). I forgot how tireing and how much hard work they are at that age and it really wasn't all that long ago.
Anyway, happy stitching all and thanks for dropping by.
