Isn't #FinishItFriday useful? Not sure how many more years I'd have left it to languish otherwise. Oops.

and a shadow work design in the centre.

The design is worked in herringbone stitch so the dense stitches on the reverse create a "shadow" on the right side. There are also three small eyelets.
I'm glad to finally have this finished and be able to show it off. This is the last of the embroidery course posts I'll be making, as I never collected my canvaswork assignments and I didn't do the goldwork module before I dropped out due to pregnancy exhaustion. I have looked into going back to complete the course but they've changed the schedule so the two modules I didn't complete are now in two different years. Still, I really want to find a way to finish, so maybe in a year or so when N. is older.
