Friday Finishes #32: Families Are Forever

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!

Friday Finishes #26: iPhone Cross-Stitch Case

The finished piece!

The finished piece!

Welcome to the next Friday Finishes article!

I honestly have no idea what the number of this finish is… I’m guessing it has to be around the 15th or so? Once I actually get around to writing all of my articles and they’re all in proper order I’ll be coming back to fix the number. (I’ve just done a mental count and it seems like it’s more in the mid-20s or so rather than 15 but we’ll get back to it!)
