Another Finish

This is a Heartstrings pattern by Pat Thode.    Four of us stitched this same pattern a few years back. And then this sat languishing in the basket with other unfinished finishes.


It was a fun piece to stitch and did stitch up relatively quick.  Even better, I am pleased with how well the finishing turned out.

Finishing was not too terribly difficult but it did take more than a few hours to do.  My friend Pat and I each worked on finishing our pieces while at Camp Wannasew earlier in the month.   It was good to do together...what I didn't think of she did and vice-versa.



Another check mark in the good old finished column.   Time to pack St. Nick away until next Christmas.

Happy stitching all.

Robin it looks great! I'm planning on finishing mine next week in VA. Still not sure about the size of my cord. I may stitch a little on and take a picture. Maybe that will help decide.

Congratulations on getting this Santa in finished form! I like how you finished him. Is he permanently attached to the stand or can he be removed for easier storage? Have a wonderful week!
