After a very, very long time, the ANZAC mat is finally finished!
I finished the border around the mat, soaked it in Napisan and then tea-stained the mat. The worst part was trying to pin the mat out on a cork board and square the whole thing up. I spent so long trying, the mat was almost dry by the time I finished. Also I had lost a significant amount of skin on my thumb pressing the pins into the board. I think maybe I need a foam board next time.
