There was not a lot of stitching going on. Instead it was a finishing day. I spent the day in my craft room working on the final steps of several projects. It was a rather productive day.
Four Victoria Sampler Christmas crackers. Santa, Snowman, Gingerbread Man and Angel. Remember that I do the hemstitching while at the hospital. So today it was time for a bit of interfacing, the seam up the back, ribbons and stuffing. Then I also pressed and interfaced the back of the Bird of Happiness project bag.
This is not done. This is a project that has been hanging around for many, many years. Perhaps a dozen years. Someone cut the fabric in half and had to figure out how to finish it with two separate pieces of fabric. I have been puzzled as to how to put the two pieces together and used a four sided stitch on both sides to merge the two together. Today I worked at pulling the threads and pressing for hemstitching all the way around. I will work on this at the hospital. I can't believe this one may actually get done.
Finally the Little House Needlework pillow complete with hand dyed ric rac around the outside. The backing is a lightly flowered quilted material.
