And sew I've finished one........

Finally, with the month nearly over I have my first Sew It's Finished finish.   I started it in 2008, and only had to sew on the dragonfly button, sew the final seam and stuff it.  I know - what is wrong with me - it took me all of about 20 minutes this morning.  So now, finally I can add one to the tally!




This is In My Garden Needleroll by Shepherds Bush. Isn't the little dragonfly a sweetie?  The verse says, "In my garden, gently grow, buzzing blossoms, row by row."
  
There's been some beautiful finishes here already - keep up the good work girls....... happy stitching ...........

EDITED TO ADD:  I have changed the font in this post as it seemed to come out very small and was unreadable to some.  Apologies, not sure what happened, but hopefully this is now fixed!  Thanks

You are a whiz at finishing projects..... and such pretty ones too.... love the soft colors and embellishments. You need to stop showing the rest of us up!!! :)

Question, did you change the font on this posting? On my computer, it appears to be a cross between English and Cyrillic. Sometimes, I run across blogs where the font looks like this and I am so disappointed in not being able to read the text. Am curious if it is my computer or that I don't have that font. Thanks for your time in answering this question.
