Oh yes, she's DONE!
Maggie the Messmaker
EXACTLY 9 years after I started (7/18/01 - 7/18-10). I had to get a massage Monday to get over all of the hours of stitching this weekend.
I'm not sure why I finished it because I really dislike (hate) it. But I have learned a valuable lesson about starting projects on a whim. I bought this kit because it was only $30. I never considered the hundreds of hours that it would take to complete. The gold stitching on the sewing machine took about 3 hours and the couching of the mice and backstitching on the linen took about 5 hours.
