Mary Wigham Happy Dance

I finished MW yesterday, yay
A quick reminder of how she started out in April


And here she is in all her creased glory :)


Close up of the changes I made 








Yes I know a couple of the initials appear twice but I can't help it if my Mum and brother share the same ones or my eldest DD and me do.

I started Mary way back in 2009 when Needleprint offered her as a free design over a couple of months then she got ignored and put away in the drawer for a while until Pat and I started our Quaker Friday SAL and we both decided to work on our Mary's after a while.
A huge change in Pat's life meant we had to stop our SAL so Mary went back in the drawer until April this year when I finished Scary Book and decided that she was up next.

She's on BST from Sparklies and other than putting my own initials in she's stitched as charted

Congratulations she is beautiful I must get mine out from the drawer she is languishing in . I accidently corrected some of the mistakes and am not sure whether to leave it as is or not

I printed this off ages ago, but have yet to attempt it! You did a beautiful job of it! Congrats on a spectacular finish! :)

Congrats on the Happy Dance! I fully intended to stitch this as a SAL on FB but then the Papillon ATW came along... I still have the threads I chose for Mary, maybe next year!

Your's is certainly very inspiring. I like the idea of putting family initials on it too.
