Johnny is finished!!

He is finally done!! Johnny Depp is all stitched up and looking great!! I think he looks very realistic.

I had planned to use the remaining pirate fabric and try a "flatfold" finish, but my friend (whose daughter it is for) said she intended to hang it on the wall in a frame. So I am just going to back it on cardboard like when I make a card and give it to her to choose the frame.

I finished that last night, then today I have finished Dusky Dreams..... yeah me!!!! I went to the shop to buy 2 buttons that the pattern asked for, but I have left them off in the end, they just weren't right. Instead I added a couple of extra eyelet stitches so there wasn't a gap. I have a frame for this so will finish framing it tomorrow afternoon.

Today I have worked on "I Do" as we have had our wedding invite and I now have the initials and confirmed date. I aim to finish this by next Saturday so I can take it to be professionally framed.

Work has been ok, I am a little clearer about my role and have Julie coming in on Monday to help me get to grips with my new tasks..... Just hope it works out ok.

Tonight I will continue with I Do and Family Tree, as well as another card for my ebay order.

Happy stitching....
