The craft room has been a busy place lately. Gobble has been framed and is already gracing the family room with his cuteness. This was a fun project and a pretty quick stitch. I'd like to stitch seasonal pieces to frame and put in a little frame stand at the appropriate time of the year. It'll be interesting to see what I come up with.
I also finished stitching Christmas Box Ornaments last night. The boxes are very pretty decorated with metallic thread and beads. I will admit that I didn't enjoy working with the metallic thread, even the end result is lovely. I know I want to make this into a bellpull, but still have to figure out how I'm going to do that. Should it have a different fabric backing, or should I just fold the fabric back to make a self-backing? Should the bottom be straight or pointed? Any suggestions are welcome.
And just to prove that I was able to overcome my fear of the serger, I'm posting a picture of my "progress" in threading it. I've actually succeeded in threading it, but there is one step that is wrong. I know what it is, but can't figure out how to place the thread where it says to. I might be able to if I had Barbie hands. The cats might be able to fit their little paws in there, but then there is the problem of lack of thumbs. But I am still determined to get this thing going.
