It seems it's been awhile since I have posted an entry into my blog. The year just seems to get busier and busier as it ends.
Well I have been busy! I feel very accomplished for this year.
Projects I have finished:
The pink baby quilt for my neighbors grand daughter;
The cross stitch xmas stocking for my grand daughter;
The string scrappy basket weave quilt top;
and last but not least the following project . . .
I decided to sew them together on the ends that usually would go on the curtain rods. I removed the sewing that made the casing at the top of each and sewed together at that side.
Now there was embroidery work on each side of the valance. I wanted to make a table topper with it for my circular table. It looked pretty good. The only problem is that the seam in the middle was very bare and you could see the 4 seams where the casing used to be. I washed them but the sewing marks did not come out. So I decided to embroider a grid down the middle. The grid would hide the seam and the sewing lines from the casing.
Here is a close up of the grid work that I put in.
This is how the whole thing looks now. Even though I couldn't get the whole thing into the picture, you can get a pretty good idea from this picture.
What do you think? Does it look like a trellis between the florals?
