From frame to



 
 
fringe.  Several sewing projects that have been hanging around were worked on today in a 120 degree sewing room.    They all had a prior finish of some sort that I wanted to change and finally did. 
The ornaments are just that, and will receive stuffing and a hanger whenever the hell I feel like it.  No more pockets and fancy crap.  Hang it and get over it.  The linen on the Lydia Broome sampler (Pineberry Lane) had very thick threads.  Perfect for fringe, a large piece left that I will never use became the backing, and the machine did the sewing.  I used the Frixion pen to mark the sewing line by just running it in the ditch.  Easy to follow and straight with the weave.
 
Is it hot in here?
 
Have a fabulous weekend.
 
Thanks for visiting.

Finishes look wonderful! You inspire me to get moving on turning the pile of stitched ornaments into something that might actually get hung on the tree.

Love the finish. Still laughing "Hang it and get over it". Lol. Hot here in Michigan 95 today. The weekend won't be any better.

Just wondering. I never used a friction pen. You said you ran it in the ditch to sew. I'm not much of a sewer, but if you run the line on cross stitch fabric for ease of sewing, will the mark from the pen show? Thanks. thelab@wowway.coma

Sorry. My email is. thelab@wowway.com. Thanks.

OK, I love the shaggy fringe and never would have thought about it but it looks terrific...might have to steal that idea, as I have lots of your other ideas. Thanks!

I've actually stitched Lydia Broome and it's sitting somewhere... Love your fringed finish.
I did a little yard work this morning. I like warm, but just a little too warm for me.
Hugs :)

Cute finishes and nice stitching. I am staying in under the air conditioner where it is cool; so hot here in Kansas. I hope you find a cool spot too.

Shelly said...

Nice finish for Lydia. My craft room feels about 120 too! It's too tiring keeping my sweat from dripping on everything so I'm on a finishing hiatus.

Von said...

Love your refinishing! But I think I'd stay in the coolest part of the house until this heat moves on. :)
