bshots and rctnp for anyone who'd like to take a look.
Wow, that is a lot of work Joan and you certainly did a beautiful
job. Now how do you finish this - stand
alone figures or all put together in something like a fireplace

My question, exactly! Great work. I've seen them done in a tryptych,
framed as one with multiple mat cut-outs, as ornaments, and as stand-ups.
The hardanger looks lovely, by the way. Be proud.
Thanks, Sharon! They're going to be sewn together and stuffed, with weights in
It's kind of strange...I've been working on them for so long that I wasn't sure
what to do when I finished them! I actually had to think about which project I
wanted to do next! :}
Thanks, Ellice! I've finished so many things lately that are just sitting i=
n my cabinet waiting for me to figure out if I'm going to frame them or do =
something else! The hardanger piece is one of them. It was a nice change =
I have started My Day Complete by Keslyn's Designs (
e.com/prod/2385.html ) I'm doing it with Caron Wildflowers Elderberry Wine =
on smokey pearl linen. I started to hate the pattern because I kept messin=
g up. I pulled and restitched about 6 different sections (including 1 sect=
ion I stitched *sideways*!!!), not to mention having gotten the center port=
ion plus part of the next part done when I realized I didn't cut the fabric=
big enough...just the size of the pattern itself. Argh. Luckily I had a =
big enough piece of linen to start it over. I'm now on the outside edge of=
the inner portion and it seems to be going better. Maybe my subconscious =
was trying to tell me something on that first piece!
