Ok...we were supposed to be at a BBQ on Boxing Day at 5pm.
I was NOT MOVING from my stitching chair until this was finished. A day late - but it was finished during the Christmas break in 2009 (not in Jan 2010 or later)
I do like the shading effect on the baubles - a little bit PIA while stitching, but worth the effort visually
Looking at it now, I'm thinking that there was another adult at the Christmas Table (will check with MIL) and I'll need to add her name. I'll probably move 'Marian' up above Jan and add the extra visitor at the Table where Marian is.
I'm starting the square to represent 2009 a lot earlier - anybody know of a simple chart to show 'The poor little matchgirl' that will fit inside 80x80 grid ????
