Finally! For such a small project, this seems to have taken such a long time to complete! The fact that I had to go home for a while didn't help either.....but at last I can reveal what the mystery stitching is.......
....it's a kitchen memo board...
And not just any memo board..... a chalkboard one!
I'm going to remove the rope that's attached to the board and add one that holds a piece of chalk so it's always there when you need to write down some shopping to remember or an appointment etc.
I'm planning to make the same thing again (in a different colour scheme) for another friend for Christmas .....hopefully the second one won't take quite so long to complete!
Thanks for all the well wishes for my Dad....it's lovely to know that so many people are thinking of him......bloggers really are the most wonderful and caring people!
Until next time...happy stitching!
