Well I added some cording to this and I think it made it work much better. I liked it so much I am doing one more. I really like this finish. There are so many designs that lend themselves to this kind of finish. Thanks for looking at it.

Finished a finish

I just finished the bent creek signs of winter into a door hanger. It was great. I think it looks pretty spiffy. The tip I learned from my book was to cut an L shap at the top and bottom for example: L L but picture the second L flipped. Then fold in the sides and put the top down. It helps with mitering the corners.

Well the quiz didnt go so well but I will do well on the midterm I have to. Hope you like my finish.

Catching Up

Well Paul is getting a cold or something. That always worries me. I have a quiz on Tuesday... That too worries me lol. Right now I am working on (toying with the idea) of stitching Pine Mountain's Tie on Winter.. .Only I am stitching it on 32 ct and it will be made into a mini cube if that works out.. We will see... I am just now working on learning finishing. I did find a new idea in one of my books I have placed on ebay. A tip for making the fabric lay flatter when you mount it to poster board. I will let you know if it works out.

Well off for more studying.

Toothless Again

Well Paul is again toothless x 2. He has lost a tooth on the top and a tooth on the bottom. So the tooth fairy has had to fork out the dough in the last week and a half lol.

School is in session and roaring full speed. Trying to find time for everything. I still need some stitch time.

Working on learning to finish better. I have picked up a few new techniques.

A new Finish

I am going to try and update more often. Here is a small finish I managed. Its by Bent Creek and is called signs of winter. I think it turned out so cute. Its about 5 inches tall by 3 inches wide and is done on 32ct blue lugana. I think he turned out really cute.
