Tie-On Class at Focus on Finishing

I was lazying in bed this Saturday morning and didn't really want to wake-up. It was already past 8.00 am...ah you gotta love Saturdays! Then I remembered Karen's tie-on pillow class. Got up immediately, switched on the PC and got connected. And as promised the instructions were up.

After all the mundane Saturday chores were done with, I set on to my task. It took more time than expected. Some time to tie that darn ribbon and yet it doesn't look half as good as Karen's. I so like this finishing and this will definitely not be my last attempt! :)

Design from The Gift of Stitching Online Magazine (freebie) called French Hearts
Stitched with Carrie's Thread (Olde World Red) on antique white Belfast, 2/2

You can find Karen's comprehensive tutorial here.

Comment Notes: Thank you so much dear fellow bloggers and non-bloggers ;) on your comments on my wee box. It was a real interesting project and took a lot of 'planning'. Well, I've bought some better looking paper already and am thinking of a design...we'll see what I'll cook up next ;) Have a great day everyone!
