Down to the Wire

I'm so close to finishing that way-too-enormous 100th distributed sampler design, I can taste it. It appears that I know myself pretty well, and had the timeline just about right. I might sweat a few drops in the meantime, but I think this lovely lady will be unveiled with all the pomp and celebration that a needlework market release in St. Charles can give her.

Just some wings to add to this eternal being...
Then to fill in this (relatively) small space with a few more furred and feathered friends...
And she'll be ready to go.

Well, once I get that gigantic frame re-finished, and stretch and pin the largest piece of linen I've ever worked with, and do some last minute chart edits, and design the cover, and take a tempting photo of the finished model...

One step at a time, eh?
