Squeaking By

This one is going to be close!




Not much fabric left on the right hand side. I like my pieces framed with not much space(maybe 1/4") between the stitching and the frame.
Welcome to my new followers and thank you as always for your kind comments.

Have a great weekend!

I am the same way, I have however had to sew fabric on all sides because of such little fabric left, this does help with the framing and streching.
Happy Stitching

I some times forget to leave enough material and end up with a pillow, it is looking lovely Chris.

I think we all do this from time to time Chris, I never leave the suggested borders - I generally go for just under two inches all round.

It's looking great!
I often have very little space around the edge!

Vickie said...

ahhhh Sometimes a mite stressful that is. Hope it all works out well. I love this one so much.

Whoops! As long as it fits! The framer (or you) can always add some muslin to the side. And yes, I like small borders too.

It's looking beautiful! Great design!

Vera said...

Such a pretty design Chris -- yours is looking great!

Penny said...

Always a little nerve wracking when that happens, but it's looking good. :) I love this design!

Catherine said...

Looks good! I don't leave a ton of extra fabric on my sides ~ I think of it as a waste of good stitching linen to leave too much!

Barb said...

Your WIP is looking great!

Julie said...

Oops! I think we've all done that more times than we care to admit.

I love the mottled colors of the linen and you are making nice progress. It looks like you may just 'squeak' by with just enough linen on the right side:)

Blessings in Stitches!

I think every stitcher has had a close call. I know I have!

Oops! I think we've all done that at some point!

Brigitte said...

I also prefer very little space between the border and the frame. Great project!
