Yes! finally done – this took way longer then it should have and now that I have experienced wool I know I will be making bits and pieces in the future – small wall hangings? table runners? Working with wool is so easy – now I must learn to take better decorative stitches but I know it can come to me, I have a Craftsy class on stitching and numerous books of stitches. I can’t link to the class right now as Craftsy is developing a new site and it is temporally unavailable right now – next week everything will be there again – if you have tried to get to a class or whatever don’t worry it is still there! (edited @ 7:45 AM – Craftsy is up and running now so it might be up for good – last night when I wrote this post they might have been down for updating the new site)
Next up is to press the borders well, measure the tallest point of each border so I can figure how much to trim down in width and then get busy attaching borders. Here are the two borders spread out on the floor. I really doubt I will add anymore to them.
The last two clusters of flowers that were added this past week.
And a close up of the last cluster.
Here is one half of each border
And the other half – I’m glad I decided to finish off the Postage Stamp this way with this type of border – a really different look then with cotton applique.
I don’t know if I will get the borders completed this weekend – nice weather here and we are busy working outside too – but once I get going it should not take long and I will show it completed as soon as I can.
