This is a UFO that has become an urgent project. I purchased the kit a couple of years ago and started it, but it became forgotten (like so many others I'm afraid).
I will finish it now as soon as possible, so that DH can see it finished and framed and hanging near his whisky collection, in his own private pub in the back of our garden. My family is doing the finishing of it as DH hasn't got the possibilities anymore for it. I will publish some pictures of it as soon as the work is done. At the moment they are making the counter.
It has a lot of French knots, not my favourite part of a design, but until now, they are fairly good, I think.
Today we were at hospital again for his pain medication, the dose has increased once more and if this doesn't help, he will be admitted in hospital to see what else can be done to be comfortable. I contacted an organisation who helps people who want to stay in their own house until the end. They are a hughe support and help with whatever they can, they are the cream of our society I think. I hope I can do some volunteerwork in the future for them.

Whisky map is looking good. I hope you can get it finished soon.
I am sorry to hear that your DH is having so much pain. I hope they can find something to help.
And I hope that hopice care (that's what I had with my Mom. I'm not sure what it they are called where you are) can help you and DH find some comfort and peace.

Oh, how cool is that! Whisky Map is awesome. His own little pub? Wow!

Your whiskey map looks wonderful - you're making great progress. Hope your DH will be able to get some relief for his pain, too. ((Hugs))

It's looking great! I did 'Surrey' in this series, and gave it as a present to a friend. I was going to stitch one for myself, but didn't get around to it!

Edith, what a work of love you are doing here. It looks adorable.
I hope they can find something for your husband to feel as comfortable as possible.

A beautiful project and I'm sure DH will love seeing it next to his whisky collection. I hope you are able to find something to work against his pain.
