I have taken the last panel of my Skyros Men out of my floor stand and oval hoop for the last two men and four remaining small motifs.
I worked the two remaining bird motifs with the panel in my hand rather than in the hoop.
I then mounted the panel in a sitting frame This gives me a bit more flexibility in when and where I stitch it.
I had to leave the attached calico side panels on to fit the end man in the hoop- so I worked him first. Thus the eleventh man stitched is the twelfth man in the panel.
The end is now well in sight and reach.
