Finishing On My August Ornament


Here is my finish...



This is the Little By Little ornament from the 2004 JCS ornament issue. It is stitched on a mystery piece of 36ct linen with the charted DMC.



For the back I went with this gold color. The cording is a rust color. I won't buy this cording again. It is rayon wrapped around a fiber core. When you cut it it just totally unravels. Also the end I cut, I put some glue on and it wasn't dry and bled onto my stitching. It really isn't that bad but I know it is there. ~sigh~

Happy Tuesday!

Chris

Oh man, the bleeding cording! Well, I can't see a thing. It looks great.

You may know it's there, but I can't tell. Still, I know that must be annoying. Hope the next purchased trimming is a little less difficult to deal with!

Sorry to hear of your cording problems: saying that though the ornie looks gorgeous. Fantastic colours

Krista said...

So very cute, Chris! I don't see the bleeding, it looks perfect to me. Great new finish!

really cute chris.

Very cute finish, Chris! So sorry you had trouble with the cording. I've found that making my own is really easy and much easier to work with--try getting one of those Kreinik corders... Inexpensive and so worth the money!

Such a beautiful finish! What a bummer about the cording though. :(

How disappointing about the poor quality cording although you cannot tell from the photograph. Your finish looks beautiful.

Beautiful ornament finish Chris! You certainly can't see the bleeding from the cording.

Hazel said...

Such a sweet ornie! Love it. x

Christina said...

Grrr, I hate finishing! Your finish is beautiful Chris.

Chris,
I love your ornament finish and the cording. The cording goes so well with the bird's ribbon in his mouth. The gold fabric on the back also compliments this finish! Great job!

Yuck on the cording, but had you not said anything, then I never would have known from your pic. It is an adorable finish!

Sally said...

Love this one!

Anne said...

It's adorable Chris! Love your finish! "Don't Peek" is what I ask my husband to do every Christmas...just like a kid!

Lovely finish, but what shame with the cording. I rarely use cording because the type I can buy usually unravels and looks aweful by the time I am finished with it.
