Melissa Shirley's stable, finished
I am now in the process of putting the finishing stitches into the individual creche figures on congress cloth. That includes checking the figures for missed stitches. I'll take photographs before I send them to my finisher, which I should do by Friday. Time is slipping away and I need these for the Festival of Trees the weekend before Thanksgiving.
My beautiful mermaid is even more gorgeous now that she has been made into a framed pillow with pearls and cording. My pillow finisher wasn't sure about the pearls because if you look very closely you can see the white thread tacking the pearls down. I think the finished product is wonderful. I don't know about other people, but I just love to sit and look at my newly finished pieces. I still take delight looking at Gustav, my 30" nutcracker, among other finished projects.
