Sunday was Finishing Day!

The Owl Cracker has been finished into a cracker - one not to be opened for prizes inside, however!

Here is how it looked on my last update of April 19, 2021.

Here is the finished product. 

I have done round finishing before, so this was not too bad, but I usually wrap it around a toilet paper roll tube to give it stability and a nice round shape. I did not have one readily available, so it was done "free hand". Not as perfectly round as would be with the tube, but I am happy with it. 

As fate would have it a friend had a small (under 10) socially distanced Stampin' UP! party and her party favor included some pieces of ribbon. One of which was perfect for this cracker!!

I also finished the Celebrate Harvest piece into a pillow. I lined it and the filled it with crushed walnut shells. I still need to decide on an edging. I can easily sew it on once I find something I like. For now the edges are bare.

I used the special fabric that is a reproduction of of a page from William Bradford's journal which documented the first 30 years of the Plymouth Colony.

Happy Stitching!!
