It worked! One good weekend - three whole days, husband out of town, perfect weather, not too many chores starting at me, and a canvas to complete. Now this dapper frog and charming Eurasian blue tit can be sent off for finishing. There are two more birds to stitch, perhaps having these two on the wall will inspire me to do the work. This is also a call for you to bring your finishing in - a box is going out soon.
p.s. If you love that frog canvas and want one for yourself, let me know. I can order it for you!
