When I moved to Arizona I missed the finishing class offered by the Sampler Guild of the Rockies and taught by Linda of Chessie & Me. I did all the stitching pre-work, but our house sold and we had to head south before the finishing class.
Luckily they sent me the instructions and supplies for finishing and here they are!! I have had this in a box since June (maybe July) and now getting around to working on it.
This is the stitching attached to wool that I will attach to the "book" which I am still in the process of painting, so more later on that.
Last September I had a blog post that included information about a clover twisted cord maker I found at my local Tuesday Morning and promised to report on it when I used it. Well I used it to make cord for this project. It made a decent cord and overall it was easy enough to use.... BUT see the wheel on the sides at the top (just below and to the sides of those white knobs, sorry my cord is over the wheels a little). I had to turn the wheel manually and fully 130 times to get this cord. Not really my idea of a good time!
I need to make more cord for the needle book and will probably use this cord maker again for consistency, but the length will be shorter, so I will not have to turn the wheel as many times - instructions tell you how many turns based on the thread length.
The cord is for a little scissor fob.
To be continued later!
