Stitched in 2000 when my Nana was in hospital then residential care.
I was stitching this on the day she passed away, literally beside her bed stitching.
I'm not sure when I finished her but the 8th August is Nana's Birthday.
The dark areas are reflections of our ceiling beams not marks on the fabric!
Stitched on 28 count evenweave mostly over 2 but her skin is over 1.
My first experience of over 1, her face and neck took all of the four day Easter weekend.
