I am NOT a finisher! Holy smokes... I am a fairly quick stitcher, at least that's what my stitching friends say, and I had a little pile of stuff I wanted to finish. I've been on a "smalls" kick lately, and they all had great directions. BUT I apparently can NOT cut cardboard equal sizes! Putting a stitched piece over a cardboard piece that has padding on it and trying to connect it to another cardboard piece is not as easy as the directions make it look!
Thankfully cording covers a multitude of sins! My cording is much thicker than on the pictures, because my mistakes are much bigger!:) I have a great pattern that I've stitched, and want to finish, but I'm scared now that I'm not going to be able to do it! It involves FOUR cardboard pieces! Oh dear! I'm afraid I'm gonna ruin it!
I did get two things finished and if you don't look too closely they should be fine. I have another that the glue is drying under my wedding album! (That thing is heavy!) I was afraid I had ruined that piece, but it might just be salvagable afterall!
Hopefully I can post some pictures tomorrow.
