Oh My Goodness!!! The Abbey is FINISHED!!!!

I can hardly believe it!!!!! After all these years!!! Of course! I wasn't stitching on it exclusively and consistently since I started it, but it has had a spot in my rotation consistently since 2011. I just want to sit and stare at it!!! And let me assure you! That IF I ever do another Marty Bell piece again, I will NOT be saving all the back stitching until the end!! Torture!!!! But the end result? Worth it!! Thank you to all my readers who encouraged me on my journey to this amazing finish! Your comments mean so much to me!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
