All your stitching is looking great. I will be starting on 99 Bottles soon. I am waiting for the fabric to come in, hopefully soon. I am stitching it for my Dad on his 70th birthday in December.

Well done! I'm so jealous. I've so busy with life and work I haven't been able to pick up any stitching.
