A new/old finish


This week I ornamentified a TW cloisonne ornament that I stitched in 2001. I was having a really hard time trying to figure out just how to finish this one. I had something that I tried and didn't like - so then ripped it out. I finally decided on a 4-sided stitch (is that the actual name of it?) that is almost like a kloster block in that it holds the weave of the fabric together so that you can fringe the outside.
I just finished ornamentifying two ornaments for the exchange. Now to address the envelopes so I can get them in the mail tomorrow.
