Although the birthday was yesterday, we have a family dinner tonight when we will celebrate, so the extra day got me over the line.
It has been a bit of a marathon.
I finished cross-stitching the bottom of the kimono, then took the piece out of the hoop to do the backstitch - quite a lot of it - around the edges, the face, then the gold highlights and additions. It was easier to move around the whole piece out of the hoop.
This is the finished piece. I will post the box-making and finish over the weekend.
