Craft has a strong re-purposing, 'make-do-and-mend' ethic about it. So what do you do when you kind of realise that you are just not going to finish an embroidery? Patch it up, frame it and give it to your Nana for Christmas! Looks good to me!
(There were meant to be 3 houses in the original embroidery, but the open-weave fabric and multiple other projects got the better of me. This bit of work is now cheering up my Nana's new room in the old folks home)
