Goodness knows what I've been doing with my time that it took so long!
Two things have helped me finish the project which I must acknowledge:
The SAL with Margaret & 'Berta. Thank you to you both for taking time to do it with me. Without your encouragement, Fred might still be lerking at the bottom of the UFO pile.
This blog. I set it up in March 2006 after reading other stitchers' blogs with the specific idea of encouraging myself to get going on UFOs I really did want to finish. Stitching can be a lonesome task. The blog with its updates and all the wonderful readers' encouragements made all the difference. Thank you, too.
