Finish Something, Finish Anything!
Laura Sandison finished an ornament for her youngest son.
Becky Autry finished a 4th of July cross-stitch for her fireplace mantel.
Connie Swistara finished this piece that will be the center to a quilted wall hanging. It is a combination of hand stitching, coloring crayons, and buttons. The buttons are just set there for the purpose of the pictures so that you get an idea of what it should look like.
I can’t sew the buttons on until after the entire thing is quilted and bound. I had a hard time with the berries. Each one was a challenge. I had to keep looking up how to do that stitch. I’m very proud of how the satin stitch on the stick turned out. The colors are from “Watercolors” by Caron and DMC. It was fun using different thickness threads to get different layers and depths. Thank goodness the crayon coloring turned out OK. Once that was heat sealed there was no turning back. Yikes! This was my first attempt using thread and crayons to create depth. I’m very pleased with how this turned out.
