You have completed section 9

When I was designing this pattern I felt this section was brutally long and slow.  The past three weeks or so I have tried to break it up to keep the repetitiveness a little less boring.  This happens to be the largest section I ever designed staying with one common stitch theme.  Thank you for sticking with it through this slow process.


As usual, please take some time to stitch in all of your ends.


Please remember this pattern is my original design and is protected by copyright.  It is and will be available only on my website.
