Finished ...


This was the last square ... & I added herringbone stitches (927-blue)in the borders.

I'm really pleased with this tabletopper : ) I will work on the nun edge a little at a time over the next couple days. Just wish I could get over this 'cold' bug. It is a drag.

UPDATE: Yes, I do have a place for this tabletopper! Probably put it out after the local Fairs & NANI exhibit. And, I'm keeping it & enjoying it. I like to stitch sampler motifs like these ... now on to my canvas piece. Using metallics is a challenge for me. Thank goodness for pink hair tape -- It does help those sore areas on my fingers!!
