December 1, 2014--Finally got around to making something of this wonderful Nancy Cucci project and decided to make it into a simple ornament (no tassel--didn't have enough thread) :-(
This is a continuation of learning how to finish my own needlepoint. I learn something new each time I do this. For example, this time I learned to be sure to center the back correctly, to cut a narrower allowance for folding over (don't need more than 1/2 inch), clip into that allowance, but not to close to the edge, etc.
I'm developing a keen appreciation of the work done by professional finishers.

December, 2011--Finished stitching a project begun at ANG's 2011 Seminar in San Antonio, TX class taught by Nancy Cucci. Still not sure how to finish it--maybe as a door knob hanger or draw pull. It's too big to think of as an ornament, but definitely needs a special tassel.
