Heart of America--finished--unframed

Here's a sneak peak at the frame. Just placed above it. I thought I had a large enough mounting board but it was still too small. So, tomorrow night, hopefully, will finish working on the delimma.


When the kit puts in 1 skein of English Ivy floss........this is how much is leftover at the end. I was sweating bullets that it wouldn't be enough until the very end. yep, 2 cm is left.

The buttons are not sewn on yet. I did press it good. I will give another good pressing before framing tomorrow night and will sew the buttons on right after I do the final press.

So, here ya go!

I'm headed for bed. Still not feeling so good but was determined tonight to finish this piece.

  13. It looks fantastic Jennifer and that frame is really going to set off your stitching perfectly. Wow, you didn't have much thread left, did you. I think that I would be sweating bullets too. I've heard that is a common complaint with their kits - they're skimpy with the threads! Congrats on a great finish! What's next?
