Last stitch - 21st July 2013
Fabric - 32ct Belfast linen

Block 8
wording altered in memory of my late dad, he was a sailor 
 
Block 9

added the date and my name to the ships sails,
it seemed the perfect place to include that without it spoiling the design in the other squares

It's been a wonderful project to stitch.
 
I shall miss it but am really pleased that its finally finished and can be framed.

Thank you for all your encouragement and support whilst I've been plodding along with this over the past 2+ years.

  5. Wonderful, wonderful finish, Julie!! I know how long those HRH pieces take, but they are well worth all the time spent! I think the block in memory of your father is so special--how he would have loved this piece...

  34. WooHoo Julie! It is absolutely beautiful and you should be so proud. I can imagine you will miss stitching on it. I am like that with all my projects no matter if it is stitching or quilting or bobbinlace. I told a friend recently that I feel sad when I put a last stitch in a quilt...which must be why I have so many UFOs...lol!

    Hugs from Holland ~
