Guest Blogging and a Flat Finish

My first guest post for "Stitching the Night Away" is up today.  You can read it here.

I got up the courage to attempt to turn my Holly Heart Mill Hill piece into a flat finish.  I left 1/2" around the sides and I was able to flip it successfully without damaging anything.  It's looking nice.  I didn't put a kickstand in the back but next time I'm at SCRAP, I'll be looking for some nice border cording.

Can you believe Thursday is Thanksgiving?  I totally forgot!


  1. Hello

    I found your blog through another one I was reading.
    Your finish is beautiful!
    Have a nice weekend - I'm off to read your guest blog now.

    1. Hello Pixie. Thanks for stopping by. :-)

    2. Totally didn't realize I was signed in as my husband! Joy

  2. Congrats on a great finish - the beads really add to the sparkle. I do love a Christmas stitch :)


  3. Very pretty ornament finish! I'll have to try that someday.

    I knew it was Thanksgiving when I saw everyone at the store with turkeys and potatoes in their carts!

    1. Hi Debbie,

      It's actually not an ornament. It's just going to stand on my shelf like a pillow.

      Better get your fixings now because the Wal-Mart last year ran out of flour and sugar. It was sad. And Kroger was unusually busy at non peak hours.

  4. It looks great Joy! Thanks for asking my advice and for sharing with me too :)


I love to hear from my followers! Let me know what you have to say.
