Well, 12 years later, I can now cross this one off the UFO list.
I did lose it, find it, lose it find it, then lose it again. Then it turned up in the boxes when I unpacked when we moved here. Another positive is that as I finished it now I can put 2017 as the date. That means I have finished the sampler for 2017. You beaut! It amazes me that in that time I never misplaced any of the cottons so all the colour is the same. I did separate the pattern from the project for a few years but all is well that ends well.
