All Done


Winter white Is finished,
Turned and ironed the weavers cloth to the back at the very edge of the punch and left about a 1/2 inch hem.  It is then backed with wool Turned the sides to about 1/2 inch, then blanket stitched the punch needle to the wool. Added the beaded pearls by stitching each one separately using a beading needle which is very long and ultra thin. Added my label to the back and it's all ready for next Christmas... I will however leave it out a bit for the winter. 
Enjoy, Kate
