Here it is! You don't have to look at progress pictures anymore (I'm sure you were getting sick of them!).

I'm VERY pleased with the way it has turned out - lots of hard work, but well worth it. Thank you for all your cheering and compliments - they really DO help ... and I promise hand-on-heart I'll take more time to comment on YOUR blogs, now I'm not on such a deadline!
I started an ornament last night, and nearly finished it - it was soooooo nice to be stitching something different :)
Sounds like we're all going to the beach, DH was going to take just the older kids down to Paekakariki beach (bigger waves and deeper) ... Charlotte is being her delightful self and wanting to go to, so I'll do the good mother thing and go down with them.
