As usual my skill with a camera is less than average and the pictures are slightly out of focus.
I tried to take pictures up close of the Kreinik metallic braid and beads as they kind of get lost on top of the stitching for the head and tail.
I haven’t decided as yet how I’m going to finish it. I’m not just going to fringe the edges. Maybe a checkbook type of flat fold with either a bead or ribbon closure. I did a Google search on needlebook finishing techniques and found a few ideas to get me started. Anyway, it will be awhile before I get that part of the project done. But when I do don’t worry I’ll be posting it to the blog.
Rotational Stitching: Well I’m back in my stitching groove, now that I’ve actually finished something. So it’s back to my side bar WiPs and I’ll be pulling out the French Mystery “Once Upon A Time”. Of the 16 parts Annick has posted up through 11 and so far I’ve only done up through part 3 so I really need to get moving. It’s free if anyone’s interested in stitching it – check it out!!
