Finishing


Finishing, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Finishing a project always seems like the hardest part to me. There is a bag of stitched works sitting next to my chair that just need those last finishing touches. I am forever at a loss of how to do that. But this little piece seems to be coming together just fine. It just needs some final stitching around the edge and the snowflake attached to the bottom and it will be done! The gold star on top came from my sister, who had extra after a scrapbooking project! I love the effect of all the snowflakes and snow flurries!

Snowflake
The snowflake was one I made last year for a winter/Christmas round robin and never used, because it was a little uneven. It seems the perfect embellishment for this piece!

What a cute little quilt. The crocheted snowflake is the perfect final touch. I've followed your blog for years now. I don't CQ any longer due to arthritis but I love to see your seasonal decorations and your array of projects. Happy holidays.

How cool is the snow falling on your blog to go with the stitched cloths you've shared. Nice!

This is truly beautiful! I love the colors and textures and the addition of the crochet snowflake.

I know what you mean about finishing being a hurtle, especially when you're not sure how you want to complete a project.

Some projects almost "tell" you how they want to be finished, but the ones that don't can be a real headache. I don't think there is a single embroiderer anywhere in the world that hasn't met that problem!
