Friday Finishing: Repurposing and Ribbons

Terry Dryden just got a photo of one of her class pieces for a pillow roll stitched and made up into a darling tote bag. Isn't this lovely?!

I am always amazed when a stitcher takes a design and makes it up into something totally different than the original model.  It's another way to personalize your stitching to suit yourself and your lifestyle.

By the way, Diane just found a wonderful online source for quality ribbons, which is very important for those who do their own finishing.

Two other sources I know of are Mindy's Needlepoint Factory and Chaparral Needlepoint, whose Carolyn Hedge Baird stocks a nice collection of ribbons and trims for finishing.
