The Finisher's Role

The finisher is responsible for elevating our stitching from the box under the bed or the back of the drawer to a showstopper on display.  In the link below, Anne shows off her little penguin stockings, one for a girl and one for a boy, that she designed for siblings.  Her local shop turned her designs into real Christmas treats that can be cherished for years.

Diane's just gotten finishing back as well.  She has the fascinating earmuff ornaments from Linda Lahn, a Renaissance Designs puppies bookmark, and a cute Painted Pony angel to show off here.

Wait'll you see Patti's stitching!  The finishing is different on each design to match the use Patti planned for it.

Associated Talents' Skeletor

Remember Skeletor, the small Halloween ornament from Associated Talents?  I call him Bob.  Bob's a 2 1/2 inch square Halloween ornament from Associated Talents that I finished over a year ago and put away.  Now Skeletor has been at West Coast Finishing, becoming the ornament of my dreams!

Boxed Sides with Pompoms
Many thanks to Sue Parsons at West Coast Finishing for coming up with a way to enhance Bob without overwhelming this small piece.  Finishers are the unsung heroes of the world of needlepoint!
