I’m just no good at judging how long something is going to take.  I was sure that it was going to take two weeks to get him finished but in less than a week I stitched that final page.

He’s had a wash and dried overnight and all of the magic guide grid lines have washed away (it was a very nervy wash just in case they didn’t disappear).  He’s looking gorgeous and now will just need to go to the framer which may be a while because it’s so far away but after the beautiful job they did with my other pictures I really don’t want to do the framing myself anymore.

So all the details.  I started him on 9th February 2012 and finished him on 17th November 2012 (spookily Little Princess was finished on 17th November 2011).  I’ve spent 113 days stitching him, so almost 4 months.  Focus and concentration do seem to be the way to go especially when I’m nearly finished on a project.

Next is finishing my first page on Eternal Promise and then I’m going to have a go at finishing my last two yearly goals which is one more page on Computer Catastrophes and half a page on Mini Lost In You.  All of my stitching bits and bobs for Couch Dragon have been tidied away (I was at a bit of a lose end last night once he was finished and washed) so I’m ready to get straight on this afternoon.

    Wow he looks amazing. Congrats Nicola on yet another brilliant finish. Good luck with your goals but the way you stitch you will achieve them with your eyes closed.
