I'm enjoying stitching very very much!
This time, I tried free stitching and finished it last night!
I had been really wanting to try free stitching from a long time ago, and finally decided to try it, as I saw very lovely design on the magazine.
It was the first time for me to try free stitching, though it was very fun!
This is a close up photo of stitched piece.
There was an instruction on the magazine, but I didn't do the same, just have done with easy stitches that I can do.
I was thinking how to finish this a lot, first I was going to make a pinkeep, but it was a bit big as a pinkeep, so decided to make it as a flat board.
I used my favourite fabric for the background and also the back, and put stitched piece on it.
Then added linen lace both top and bottom sides then also added pearl buttons!
I liked and enjoyed this, but compare to cross stitching, I realized how much I LOVE it (cross stitch)!
So I won't do free stitching anymore, lol (easy, aren't I?)
But it was a good opportunity I think, and am satisfied this result as my first work!
