Thread Winder Finish

This is a PITA finish. I felt like I was back in kindergarden playing with glue. My fingers were all sticky. Do you know how difficult it is to paste rounded then straight then rounded again objects? But as always the frustration is worth it! ;)

Turn out great if I might say so, and I'll most likely wind my tatted lace with it. How grand! :)


So that effectively completes the Thread Winder Quarterly SAL at NNC. Next quarter will be pinkeeps.

Also I've finished stitching for the Fair & Square Exchange. I'll be mailing it out to Wendy on Monday. No pictures till Wendy receives the squares. Also I hope the back of my stitching is neat enough for her. I am definitely not one of the neatest stitchers when it comes to the reverse side of stitchings :p

Also mailing out tomorrow is my WLE(Wish List Exchange) to Usha. I am happy with my progress so far and my commitments have all been met, way ahead of time I might add :)


Comment Notes: Thank you all for stopping by and leaving a comment or two. Very kind and encouraging of everyone.

  17. BJ,

    I just envy all your beautiful work and jealous with all the wonderful finish piece that you have done. I wonder how you can have all those time stitching all the gorgeous design. Another marvelous finish.
