I have not posted this past week because it was spring break and My mom came to visit from the great white north to care for A. while I did stuff to make me happy, like stitch, shop, and clean. No seriously that DOES make me happy. One of the things on my list was finishing 2 years worth of stitched christmas ornaments. I stitched all of these (except the PS on the lower right, I recieved that in a tuck pillow as a christmas gift). So I measured and sewed and twisted cord, and sewed some more, and swore at those people who make finishing look so easy and perfect. (note that I did not show a close up photo of these 8 ornaments
Question of the day from a frustrated ornament finisher: How do you attach twisted cord? If you glue it it looks like a first grader did it (unless there is some fancy glue out there I am unaware of), If you stitch it do you go over the cord or through it? I tried it both ways and it STILL looks like a first grader did it, ok ok maybe a third grader. I can't seem to do it where the attaching thread is well hidden and doesn't distort the cording.
