I've finished the panel with all the letters and numbers that will be part of the needle roll that is part of Ode to Jane Austen.
I believe I am going to do the other parts of the needle roll and put them together, then move on to another of the smalls that will fit into the desk.
I am seriously thinking that I will do finishing as I stitch, rather than stitching everything and having a huge pile of things to put together at the end. I love doing the embroidery, and I love having the finished project--it's the part between that I don't love. Maybe if I spread it out a little more, it won't feel so overwhelming.
And maybe I won't lose anything if I do it that way . . .
