Meari wanted to know what the pattern was that I picked up at Salty Yarns last weekend that was pink and green on the cover. Well here is it. Photos are clickable for a larger view. (Sorry, I am photo challenged! Sometimes they automatically turn to the correct orientation and other times, like now, they don't!) It is a Sue Hillis booklet on stitching the lining and smalls for the Whitman Sampler Tin. Even though these are sideways, you can still see the detailed instructions and this is only some of them. I was really impressed with Sue's detail and color photos of the finishing. That is what sold me on the book. Finishing is where I need some lessons.
Next, for Julie M. my framing issue. I don't know if that shows how untrue the edges are. I have taken my items to the locals Farmer's Market for years paying 1/3 to 1/2 what they charge at the chain stores even with a coupon. Here are some more photos with the help of my Omnigrid lucite ruler. Each horizontal line with the hash marks is one inch apart. You can see over the space of 2 inches it 'moves' about an 1/16 of an inch. No big deal some may say.......it gets worse.....'moving' over a 1/4 inch over 4 inches. I expected to get home tonight and have a voicemail from the framer but nothing. I need to put on my 'don't mess with me' face and pop on in to the store tomorrow. Part of me is just easy-going and kind of like ...it adds character......but another part is screaming you didn't get what you paid for. We shall see what the morning brings.....for now relaxation with needle and thread and my Blue Ribbon Design piece!
