You may remember me coming across this unfinished cross stitch again which I started in my early teens, it's definitely the the oldest unfinished project I've got. I was in two minds whether to finish it off or not, especially as it had a rust mark on it. Take a look at what I mean in my Rusty Cat post. I decided I'd give it a go and the stitching actually covered up the stain so it wasn't a problem in the end. All the cross stitching is now done.
This means there's just the back stitching to do now, my least favourite bit. I've been toying with the idea of leaving it as it is but you can see from the photo accompanying the kit that the back stitching just finishes it off, so I think I've come all this way to getting it finished, I'll just have to bite the bullet and continue on with it. What do you think?
I've been working on this for an hour each week as part of my crafting rotation and even though it's only a small wedge of time, it does mean that older projects get a little work put into them and get finished off eventually.
