I finally finished it! It looks a little rough, the finishing was fiddly trying to hold stuffing, fold the edges, and stitch at the same time. I hope it isn't disappointing to it's new owner. This is the first time I tried finishing this way, so I was learning as I went. The idea came from a 1982 Vanessa Ann leaflet called Mistletoe Express. I just changed fabric colors, floss colors, and added 4 other motifs.
It goes in the mail tomorrow morning, winging it's way across the sea! I hope it arrives in time.
