mini finish

took a break from stitching halloween fairy to focus on getting better which seems to have worked, headaches are going away and stomach pains are less frequent which is a good thing :). Have spent a bit of time reading a few of my favourite books and decided to stitch one of my favourite quotes about books onto an aida band scrap i picked up in an aida goody bag from a show. Took about 2 hours to chart the design up so it would look balanced & fit onto the band and about 45 mins to stitch. I'm pretty pleased with the end result, just need to back it with some interfacing to make it a little more sturdy & some felt to hide the stitching at the back.
In case you can't read it the quote says 'some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed & some few to be chewed & digested' Also just for fun here is my Newton's Law kit 'season's greetings' finished after 3 xmas' of stitching!
