Friday Finish: Families Are Forever

Today’s Finish!

Today’s Friday Finish is a photo album cover I made for Christmas several years ago now. With this project I attempted to do something unique with the finishing for the first time. I can be very generic and prefer to keep projects in hoops or frame them, but this piece I carefully measured and stitched to fit in the hole where a cover photo would normally go!
