E is for the End

 The last letter to be stitched was the E, and finally, after months of being in progress, it is finished.
The elephants in all their splendour

This will now go to one side until I get the fabric to make a quilt/wall hanging.  This is going to be the central panel.  In the meantime, all the threads are sorted and put away.  A design has been found, threads pulled and a list made for threads to buy.  Before that though, I think I am due for some sewing machine time, some knitting and some embroidery, although not necessarily in that order.

Thank goodness for that lol. Everyday I have popped on to see their progress, thinking it was finished..and now it is. It is beautiful. I cannot believe how quickly they flew by. Well done! Looking forward to seeing what the next project is. On another note, X finally out grew that lovely jumper you knitted him. I was quite sad when I could no longer scrunch his arms up into the sleeves. Thank you, it was certainly a great knit. ;-)

Wow! It is fabulous, Jane! Congratulations on finishing it so quickly. Once you get your head down and bum up (as we say Down Under), you don't mess around, do you!

I knew you'd have this finished before year end! You have been a woman on a mission and these little cuties are worth all your hard work.
