Ta Da!!!!!!

I am so proud of this...It has only taken 4 years, but I have finally finished my Merry Cox piece I got at the 2004 Shepherds Bush Retreat. It's called "Her Necessaire". It was nearly finished for most of those years, but only decided to pull it out last week. It took about 9 hours to put the whole thing together....!

Great job Georgie! It's just gorgeous and I know how happy you must be with it. I'm taking mine to the retreat to show CathyUT. She's been slack & hasn't finished hers LOL.

Thank you again for the Fair and Square exchange, and for posting the picture on the blog. My iron has gone into hiding since we moved. I MUST find it tonight because I have to finish a gift for my son's teacher for the last day of school - which is TOMORROW!!!! (Insert look of terror here!)

Thanks for visiting my blog :-)) I just LOVE this MC finish as I am mad on the MC designs. I have 2/3 I have managed to buy and someday I look forward to stitching and finishing them . I would love to do a class with her and what you have done combining it with a SB retreat must be such an amazing experience, too cool, you lucky lucky thing !! I did two CA Wells class in November that was good fun too :-))

Yes, these pieces are indeed stunning and wonderful heirlooms.

Have a nice rest of the week
