Sneaking in a last minute finish!

As is my usual habit, I'm sneaking in a last minute finish for FAL Qtr 2!

This started out as a pile of strips, squares and HSTs. 


Mid May it was pieced 


and Loaded up on the frame


The plan had been a pretty border ad then a quick all over ...


didn't quite work out that way, it didn't come off the frame until 6 June!

and I only started stitching the binding down a week ago! 


Final push today and its done!


I'm glad it stopped raining!



so much for a quick all over then! 
But I am rather pleased with it,

its now heading to the shop, Stitchcraft Studio in Grantham as a sample

so there you have it, my final finish for Qtr 2 of the FAL! 
Phew! 

Better get that review post written!
