I finally finished my super secret cross-stitch project. Today I was mounting it on foam core so that I can ship it off to my friends, and Matagot decided to help me.
As you can see, she found the most helpful place to sit, on top of the foam core so I couldn’t move it AND on top of my finished cross stitch so I couldn’t measure it.
Somehow, though, the project got done, and it ships out tomorrow. (I have a nice blistery burn on my thumb from the hot glue gun to prove it!) I will post photos as soon as I know it has reached its intended recipients, so that I won’t ruin the surprise.
