The stitching is finished.
It has to be washed, blocked, framed, etc. But the stitching is DONE.
It was ordered and started for my husband (he wasn't my husband at the time) in 1978 by my mother-in-law and finished by me April 20, 2011.
It just occurred to me that it would have been my mother-in-law's 97th birthday today. How apropos!
Happy Birthday Jacoba Anna Baaij
