Last night (18 April 2016) I put in the last stitches on Feathers and Friends by Butternut Road. I am absolutely thrilled with this finish!! As far as I know, I made no modifications to the pattern and it is exactly as charted. Fabric used is 35 count natural linen with DMC.
Just for fun … this is my progress photo from 17 April 2016. As much as I dread putting in the back-stitching, the end result is well worth it. Seriously, the back stitching was not that big of a deal.
When I get close to the end of a project I tend to get a little obsessed. This project was no exception. It took 46 days for me to stitch Feathers & Friends.
