This has taken quite some time . . .
I started the stitcheries in 2008 - a few of us from Loose Threads decided to do it - tempted by all the lovely buttons I think - or maybe it was just "peer pressure" . . . .
I found a post from June 2014 - I know that was one of the later ones.
Finally it was a flimsy at retreat in August 2016
Then it took 3 years to get it quilted...and in the meantime I had done several re-orgs of my sewing stuff. . .where or where are those buttons???
I finally found them over Easter, so was pleased about that. Being so old it was unlikely that I'd be able to replace them
So it went onto my Sunday Stitchers' UFO Challenge List as #9 - and it needed to be finished by May 17.
