Dreams are free but they are such fun...

Oh Happy Happy Day!
At my house we are doing the...
The stitching on my UK trip book is finished.   It will be finally finish-finished onto the book cover and will look like this.
At the moment it is only pinned on but I couldn't wait to dance the dance!   Belgian linen has an open weave so I intend to line this with a piece of doctors flannel and then stitch to the fabric book cover. This has been hard work - one thread of floss over one thread of 30 count fabric but I have thoroughly enjoyed the dreams I have stitched into this.   Anticipation is in every cross!
I have the Trip Book ready.   I have the money in the bank.   Now all I need is the time and the freedom.   Look out UK - here I come (one day).
