It's moving very much towards completion, I'm relieved to say! Yesterday I finished the tree itself, put in several foreign language letters and a German flag, (the recipient did his first degree in German and is still fluent), put the tassles on the Leeds Uni scarf and generally got very stiff around the upper and neck with it and had the worst headache!!! DH gave me a good rub on my neck etc, which helped quite a lot!! Bless the man!!
Thanks so much for all the encouragement, including that to join Webrings! I haven't applied to Around the Block as they're a very much CQ ring who require 80% of posts to be CQ related and I've never posted about or stitched any CQ in my life, so I can't expect them to approve me and fair enough not!=) Similiar with the Stitchy Fingers ring. I've looked it up, but I can't honestly describe myself as a 'quilter who blogs'. I'm not a quilter. I've only ever done one piece of patchwork in my life. The description says, 'we may do other stitching, but we always quilt' and so, as I never do, I can't qualify here either. I might later on though as I hope to take a City & Guilds level 1 in P&Q to learn the basics.
