We had a lovely low key weekend. I spent time clothes shopping and leisurely house-keeping and even had a date night with Tom (Mexican food and tarot card readings!). It was just what the doctor ordered.
I realized recently that I have finishes that have never been photographed. Add it to the to-do list. The problem is my love-hate relationship with photography. I love good photos, but lack the knowledge, patience, and skills to consistently take them. Oh well, another thing for the to-do list; learn photography.
That being said, here is the latest big finish.
This was stitched on 32 count linen in The Gentle Arts “Cranberry” floss (the perfect red, in my opinion).
I am such a big fan of Modern Folk and love the way this turned out. Now I just have to work up the courage to actually sew a pillow cover with it. Zippers are so scary.
Any finishing tips, fellow stitchers? Do you do it yourself? Do you hire someone? Are zippers really as difficult as they seem? Help!
