SBQ, 12/14/2006 - Finishing Frenzies

Do you have any good internet links to tutorials for your favorite finishing techniques that you would like to share?

Hmmm. I used Kim's no-sew cube directions, and loved them....I have her flat-fold instructions bookmarked AND printed out! I've also made a lined bag and a pillow using Dani's site. Pretty much anything else I've finished I've "improvised" - LOL. I often think about taking pictures and keeping notes so I could create some little guides of my own, but my techniques usually end up being very fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants, if you know what I mean.....

I haven't been up to much stitching lately, hence the lack of updates. *sigh* I started the "Sensational Summer" heart - I've changed all the colors, and after trying the bargello stitch recommended for the water, gave up and decided to use regular crosses. Still very cute! But other than that, I've been in a bit of a craft slump. All those Christmas gifts must have left me a bit drained!
