I freely admit I'm an expert in the art of procrastination. I've been "almost finished" the Sweetheart Tree sampler for months. I'm leaving for New Zealand on Saturday. So when did I finally get it done?
Thank you Dear Minnie for providing the final impetus to get it done. She told me to hurry up and "pee, or get off the pot."
So, done it is. (BTW, Minnie started stitching this same sampler after I did and finished it long before me, so she knew exactly how little time I needed to spend on the thing to get it done.)
Now, without further ado... for my Mum...

... and seeing as it's time for show and tell, here are Dad's framed fishies:

and my sister's "T":

Happy stitching everyone!
