What are you most proud of? Eventually finishing it! It was unfinished for many years and I picked it up and did a bit now and then at long spaced-out intervals until I finally got around to completing the embroidery and constructing the bell-pull, comparatively recently, many years later.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even though I bought this kit in the '70s (but only finished recently), it's still available via the internet. Start in the middle and keep going - you'll get there in the end!
