It's done. What's left is to hand wash it, block it, and gently press it. I should get all the cat hair out by soaking, too. Then, I need to trim the excess fabric and it can be framed.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out. Next week, it will be taken in for framing and I can start the next cross-stitching project.
This weekend is devoted to cutting out and sewing the dress. I have to admit I was worried I wouldn't get the dress done in time because I really wanted to get this project done. I have way too many unfinished projects to set this aside while I was on a roll with it. It's done long before I need it and I can pat myself on the back for not having yet another stitching project half finished in the drawer.
I need to start another project if for no other reason than I love having Pilchard in my lap while I do this.
