So very very close to a finish!


I hermitted away this past weekend due to my deadline looming.  Thanks to Joysze for hosting it once again :D

I had hoped to have finished all the stitching and have only the backstitch left and I was sooooo close. However, my eyes refused to stay open and my head was missing my pillow, and I had to stop. I have about 40 stitches left! Yes, that's right....40! I am still not sure that you can see a difference, lol!

I am surprised that it has been taking me so long but the combination of the confetti and working round the mistakes have dragged it out.  I like how it looks and I know the backstitch will make it all better even though that is not going to be an easy task.  You cant see the errors and I think you would only notice them if you had the pattern and went through with a fine tooth comb, but seriously, I must have gone wrong and decided not to frog, then gone wrong again and still not frogged and so on. I wont draw attention to all the mistakes changes that have been made but suffice to say flowers were moved!!

I will cease gabbling and post some pics.....



Here's to a finish tonight and the start of the backstitch! I'm off to check out everyone elses :D
