Pardon. my. absence.
It's been busy,
orders need filling,
stitching needs stitching,
I'm trying to dig out...
I do think I see daylight just ahead!
TNNA is quickly approaching and we all know what that means!
In the evenings and early mornimg hours,
I'm trying to get my ducks in a row for that.
I've been stitching,
all three model stitchers have been stitching,
and if everything gets done by the February 22nd deadline,
there will be 5 NEW cross stitch charts releasing at the show.
Once finished work starts to trickle in from my model stitchers,
it is then time to decide on a finish for the piece...scary part!
I always hate making that cut into the linen....so, so scary!
Framing is always the easy route,
I've been known to not always take the easy route...
To frame, or not to frame...
that is the question of the day.
I have an idea for a fun finish,
but fun finishes sometimes don't
turn out how we want them to...
Do you prefer a frame finish,
or a fun, outside of the box, sort of finish???
If you are like me,
I am running out of wall space,
and prefer to tuck finished pieces
here and there,
and move them around
from place to place
as my heart desires.
