I finished a UFO!

I sat for a large portion of yesterday working at the petit point that my Auntie Betty started, Lord knows how long ago...
~
I had unpicked parts that were out in the stitch count then I had to re-stitch it.  Even I made a few blues!
~
Tiny stitches on linen - I may need a Guide Dog when I'm finished!
~
I sat at it again this morning, finishing a few sections then I had to check each part of the stitchery against the pattern to make sure there were no missed stitches.  I'm pretty sure I got them all!
~
I need to find some matching linen now and start the 'sister' pattern that Betty had.  Funny how she was working on Autumn Bouquet but the pattern was missing but she had Garden Flowers...
~
Added:  I found this stitch work amongst an enormous amount of fabrics, patterns and work that was started and never finished (about 3 garbags full, to be exact).  I went to my sisters who has those bags and we found a piece of linen which matches the piece I just finished.  Right size and ready to go!
~
Anyhow, that will be my next project...
Cheers - Joolz xx
