I have finished my Carousel Horse. I completed all the back stitch and then went back looking at it closely and discovered quite a few missed back-stitches(probably where I'd finished a thread and gone on to a different part), so I had to sort them out. Next came the blending filament(Still not keen).
I can tell you all I have breathed a big sigh of relief. Now I can start on my next UFO.
Before I do that though I've got to sort out the threads and hopefully finished a Christmas piece that I've nearly done. Then of course there's all the other things to do that seem to crop up at this time of year.
I really do thank all of you that have sent support via this site, I can say that without you the Horse would still be in the cupboard.
My next big decision is the framing of it but that will not be until the New Year as I live some considerable distance from the framer. When it is totally completed I'll post a picture then as well.
Looking forward to seeing the next finish. Happy stitching to you all

I know I have this somewhere, I also have a book of carousel horses throughout the year. One day....maybe
I'm sure you will pick just the right frame for the finished product. I've got a problem, haven't framed anything large since my divorce...my ex used to frame things for me.
