Thanks for all the comments re finishing, so glad to know i'm not the only one out there who has a problem with it lol!
fingers crossed my F&S square will turn up soon. Now working back on my friend's baby sampler and a little Thomas the Tank engine which my wee boy has been asking me to do for ages - he was so impressed with his ornie that he now wants loads done! i will add WIP pictures soon..
hope everyone has a good weekend and aren't bankrupting themselves too much with christmas shopping.. bye for now
