Drawn Thread Day 17

Today's finish is B My Valentine.  It is only half framed.  I got a frame for it and then used the frame for Claire's Birth Announcement.  So there it sits ready for me to do something with.  It was a fun stitch.  I should do something with it so I can hang it on the wall and enjoy it.

I put in the other bargello pocket on Along the River James.

Yeah! Making progress here.  Then I started stitching the center section together.  Some quilt template plastic is inserted.  I haven't used the quilt template plastic before so I am interested to see how it works inside this project.  I looked at the ribbon that goes around the outer edge.

I thought about bending it over the edge but that makes it too small.  So I'll do it similar to how the designer intended.  I don't like the corners.  I'll miter them.

I picked up the rose purse.  It has been waiting to be finished for a while.  I'm not that far away.  I bet if I worked on it all day I could finish it up.
I forgot to show you my Ladies Prim Society finish.  I didn't put the button on, I'm still thinking whether I want to or not.

I won't be posting tomorrow as I leave very early to drive across the state for a stitching class.

I'm still waiting for the Spring Casket Keepsakes kit.  I'm sure it will be here soon.
