Three down, one to go!  Though planning #4 is proving more difficult than the others, I may not get started on that one all that soon.

Vital stats:  8 1/4 x 9 3/4"; both the stitched fabric and the border are reclaimed from clothing, the border from a tiered ruffle skirt which is why, even after vigorous ironing, it's still bit wrinkly; crayon tinted background; the outline is back stitch, as usual, and the pinwheels are worked entirely in heavy chain stitch.  Which I might never use again, I am now so thoroughly sick of it!

Stunning! You might be tired of the chain stitch, but it looks incredible.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
