The final piece!
By the time I came to it, I had most of the border, the lettering and a few vine stitches in place.
I'm not too distressed about this - I may yet choose to remove the geometric design altogether. The pincushion will always remind me that I got to the end and adapted!
Below is the finished piece off the frame. The two small dots in the top right are my blood - from a finger prick early in the piece!
I am, of course, itching to construct, but I don't have a workspace at the moment with our building work. Given that I have some Christmas projects to do, I am intending to put the construction aside until after Christmas.
