More Quaker Hornbook progress...

I finished the stitching portion of With My Needle's Quaker Hornbook class project!
I really liked how the hand dyed thread looks...

Now on to the finishing to make it look like the above...I need a piece of mat board, batting, some glue, and a ton of bravery!!!

That is SOOOO pretty! I need to work on mine but as always, my fear of finishing has me in its grips before even starting the stitching!

You're right, Jacquie, that thread is gorgeous!! It looks just right for this antiquey project. :)

Wonderful!!

I love the overdyed thread you chose for the project, and I hope you'll send me a photo for my blog of the completed piece.

Jut take a deep breath, and you can move on to the finishing. It is pretty clear cut.
