I decided to use my day off to finish a finish. That sounds pretty funny, doesn't it? We talked about this exact thing at one of our Stitch Days -- what to call a completed cross stitch, and what to call it when you actually do something with that cross stitch piece. We're talking about framing or making it into an ornament or a pillow or whatever. Which one is the finish? And what do we call the other one? Or are there already terms for both of these and I'm just out of the loop? Fellow stitchers, I think we need to address this. It's important.
So I pronounced today the day of accomplishing something crafty. All thoughts of finishing the ongoing craftroom project were pushed out of my mind. Hey, all I needed was a clear table for the sewing machine, right? Yes, it is taking me a long time to organize one small room. I know. OK, I'll set a goal for organization completion: Done by September 13th. Sounds good to me. Then I'll share photos of the organized lovliness.
Back to my project. I took my completed "Love" by New York Dreamer, some fabric, some rick-rack and a little fiberfill stuffing and turned it into this.
Here's something else I just found. I went to Dictionary.com to find out the correct spelling of rick-rack (rick-rack OR ric-rac. You choose the one you like.) and there was an ad! Right there on the dictionary page for rick-rack! This could lead to all kinds of trouble, especially when you find something like The Ribbon Retreat. Look at all the ribbons and trims! I love this kind of stuff! I think I hyperventilated a little just looking through the ribbons! See what I mean when I say trouble? It's been bookmarked.
Thanks for looking at my blog today. If you have a minute, drop a little comment about what you think about my finish. And let me know if this is a finish or something else.
