It's finished!

As part of 'The Big Finish Weekend' I completed and finished the Teepee Bears Door hanger. Here it is completed.

Here it is finished!

Thanks for everyone on this blog for their encouragement. As I've said before the baby this was intended for is now nearly 13!

Now for the next one. It's The 'Country Companions Sampler' from DMC. This was probably started 7 - 8 years ago and was intended to be my 'Railway Weekend Stitching'. So this project stayed at the railway in a drawer for years. My intentions were good. Having some stitching at the railway would mean that I wouldn't have to cart any other projects down there at weekends. Well it worked for a bit. But the truth of it is I just don't like it. When finished, notice I say when and not if (I'm being very optimistic here)it will not fit in with anything else I have. So this one is destined to be given away too. I suppose it might be possible to turn it into a birth sampler.

This is what it looks like so far.

So looking at it I did what all good needlework mags tell you not to do and that is park my needle in the work. As a result there are three rust spots. First job to get them out. If they don't come out this is a none starter and UFO #3 will be seeing the light of day again!

I love this pattern and would be interested in getting one, if possible. Can you tell me where I can find it? It is so cute!
Your finishing is great I love them all. Nice job on the corrections also.
Isn't it amazing how our tastes and style changes as we get older and the more we stitch? There are some things I thought I would do and now ~ What was I thinking?
When I started stitching in 1982 there just wasn't that much out there. Now there is so much and great challenges along the way.
Take care ~
