I've done it! I've finished my Needle Guardian... and I've finished it! I completed the stitching during Star Trek III : The Search for Spock. Took a break from my marathon and did the finishing.
For the finishing on this I kinda improvised. The directions with the needlecase say to sew the felt at the center to the inside of the needlebook, and whola! Well I wanted to hide the back of my work, this being a TW the back isn't usually pretty! So I broke out my new sewing machine and finished it by machine instead of by hand. I sewed a plain white cotton to the back of my stitching and put the felt inside and sewed down the middle. I'm incredibly happy with the results!
