Puffin Away!

I can hardly believe that a year has passed since I started this cross-stitch project. How time flies! As you can see, I have been working my way up to the hole, which is visible between the two puffins. I spent the week after taking my exams stitching away to keep my mind from worrying about the results. I don't think that I could have got through that week without it.

I have basted a spare piece of fabric behind the hole and trimmed the ragged edges, but now that I am working in this area, I almost afraid to touch it because the fabric is so friable. I can't imagine how anyone does fabric restoration for a living!
