Friday Finishing: What a Difference Finishing Makes

This morning Ada proves beyond a doubt that the finishing really adds to a piece. Look at all her CandyLand Christmas canvases, each made up differently!  The finishing really reflects the personality of the stitcher and the setting in which the piece will live.

One stitcher can choose a variety of projects, too, each reflecting an aspect of his or her personality or in this case--the personalities the Christmas stocking was created for.  These stockings all belong to family members of the owner of the Enriched Stitch.  Who knew the tree was really orange?  I always remember it as gold when I lived in The City....

Here's a totally different way of finishing those Painted Pony angels.  It will work for many stand up type small figures, too.

A lot of us find finishing very expensive and not always exactly what we dreamed, so I was excited when Liz discovered this cute self-finishing ornament.  They are called Christmas Tucks.
