The Brown Beast - Done, Done, Done

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

Brown Beast is slowly approaching....completion

The Brown Beast is almost there - 15-20 more hours, tops. The upper left sections took 3 hours to complete, if that can be used as an indicator. Yes, I have my next (two) projects lined up, awaiting the completion of the beast.
