It’s been a while! Much has happened! More or less, work and life got the better of me, and any stitchy blogging went by the wayside, so brace yourself. There’s a lot of updates coming.
FFO’s first, I think.
These guys are finally framed! I didn’t end up taking them to a framer – I’d stumbled across a square frame and it was a perfect fit. The backing was NOT square, so I stretched it over the glass instead.
It Calls Me
This was a bit of a journey to put together. I had no clear idea what I wanted it to look like, so it began with trips to the various craft stores in the area to see what sea-themed items were available. It’s finished in a mini poster frame with two different spray paints – a matte blue and a sand textured one. For as unorganized as the finishing started out, I love the way it ended up. It has since been given to its intended recipient.
Letter S Mermaid – Letters from Mermaids – Nora Corbett
This pretty one was started sometime in February or March of 2018 and finished in July. First time using variegated floss, and it was …..interesting. I learned a few things. While variegated flosses are far from my favorite to work with, I do appreciate the detail they can add. She was gifted to the same friend that got It Calls Me.
This one got a frame, too!
I have several more finishes from the last year and a half, but I’ll add them in another post later.
