Wow, I haven't posted an update on this piece in a while! It's been nearly two months. And that's plenty of time to do some serious stitching, but there was very little left to do. You can see my last update on it here. And this is what it looks like now, all finished!
I was struggling to figure out what to stitch in the empty space over the sheep. Finally I settled on a flowering vine, using the same colors for the leaves and the flowers of the border along the top of the design.
I've already given it a nice bath and an iron, though it's still looking really wrinkly in these pictures. Definitely needs another date with the steamer!
Well, it's all done now. I'm so happy with the way it turned out! This has been such a labor of love for me, growing and changing for the last four months. I'm in no hurry to start another original, but you never know!
