Finally....

I've not had much luck at carving out stitching time this week but what I've managed has been very productive.

First I've got the last little bit of nun stitching finished on the Red Rabbit Needlecase. I still have to finish the stitching on the smalls, scissor fob and scrimshaw keep before I can call it a finish but they shouldn't take too long.

I have also 'finished' the first piece in my Finishing Challenge. I stitched this cute freebie back in 2003. No I don't know why it took me so long to finish either!

Quality over quantity I've been telling myself but what I wouldn't give for the chance to develop a case of 'stitch ass' at the moment.
