Genene made a gift for her son Adrian. From Genene:
Well, We were able to get the whole thing matted and framed this morning and then wrapped and packaged up so Mark is taking it to the Rhode Island distribution center to give it a jump start on its trip to Adrian I think the black frame and black mat worked out much better than I anticipated. It looks really nice
Well, here it is! I somehow managed to get the very first joining line off just enough to tweet the entire stitch out, but didn’t realize that until the head was put on! I love it anyway and so will my Dad!! I just need to give it a good steam press (using a pressing cloth) and add a small border with hanging tags. Comments today at our quilting group were: is that a fabric panel? How real looking! Beautiful….and of course, Carol – you’re crazy!!!
Maybe I’ll do another one some day when I am not rushed. Thank you for ALL your help and encouragement.
