Finishing Friday: Bigger is Better?

Ridgewood has some wonderful finished pieces to show off today.  First, look at the 3-D dolls they saw at the May trade show.  Some are from Sew Much Fun but I don't think they all are.

One of Ridgewood's customers stitched this huge under the sea piece.  It is wonderful.

Here is the entire screen.  I think the design might be by Truby but I am not certain.

Melita has framed her small Bargello pieces in a very fun way.

Eye Candy has photos of some of their designs finished.  It's fun to see the various colors.

Barbara Bergsten also has a photo of one of her Kiss designs made up.  Spectacular finishing and superb staging!

I'm not sure bigger is better, but most of these pieces are fairly large.  Still, great stitching combined with great finishing makes the impact of a small piece very big.
