more from the finisher

This little finish is from Twisted Threads. I finished it a couple of years ago, exactly as it was charted, but was not that happy with it and never could figure out how to finish it off. It was very labor intensive, all that solid over one stitching and all, so tossing it wasn't really an option, lol!

So I sent it to the finisher with the instructions to just "do whatever you want to with it".

And boy hidee, did she ever! (If you click on the photo, you can see a better close up view)



The silk ribbon she gathered around the edges (what's that called again?) was the perfect touch!

And just look at the back of it!



I really do love it now, more than I could have ever imagined :)

Andrea-I remember that design. Did you stitch it all over one? It's gorgeous. Great way to have it finished.
