So the majority of the hand stitching has been completed. We finished the frame portion of the work about a half hour before the end of our workday today and had enough time for a quick picture. If you click on the picture above you should be directed to a very large version of this if you would like to see the stitching pattern closer.
Now comes the fun part..... I get to go back over it and fix anything we missed or accidentally messed up. Then I get to trim it up and add the binding. That I have to think on, still haven't decided what to bind it with, maybe more of the black pattern, maybe, maybe not. And considering the large number of shedding animals in my house right now (7 cats 6 dogs) I will have to confine all work on this to my bedroom where no critters other than hatchings are allowed so it's going to take even longer.
But the hardest part is done.
Now onto the next project..... embroidered cats..... Stay tuned for pictures, I have a decent camera now ;)
