June Fully Finished Gallery

So...obviously, my grand plans of having one post up a day got disrupted as I have been terribly tired this week...but I'll try to get back on track nonetheless, and today I am starting by getting my Fully Finished Gallery post up, the wonderful kick-in-the-butt SAL hosted by Rachel, the Ten Hour Stitcher! And I think I can make up for the delay by showing you a whole bunch of finishes today, so let's dive right in.

First, there is the May Bookmark. As I told you last time, I ended up with a little too much free space at the top of the bookmark, so I decided to add a little six-stranded braid to cover it up. I'd never done one before, and for that I think it turned out okay!


There is also the Hummingbird bookmark. Here I went for a simple finish - I glued the fabric to a piece of cardboard (as the linen was pretty...floppy), cut it out (securing the edges with more glue), then glued the whole thing to a piece of pink felt.



I stitched the 4th of the Mini Mystery SALs by my friend Magical right beside the 3rd one and finished them as a little needle book:



Aaaand the finish you've all been waiting for - I had Felix frame my Mermaid! I found this gorgeous frame, it's a dark gray/blue with gold edges and I think it gives her a nice modern twist over the more traditional gold frame I was looking for at first:



Last but not least (well, actually, very much least, as it's not a new finish) I revisted the April bookmark. As people have suggested, I put a piece of cardboard on the back, to give the perforated paper a bit more stability:

Oh that frame is perfect! I can see why you chose it over gold. Nice frameing Felix! Hope you are feeling less tired this week x

So many pretty finishes, Leonore--love the frame you ended up using for your Mermaid, too. I'm in awe of anyone willing to tackle such stitch-dense projects :)

Fantastic finishing! The frame is lovely, it seems to pick out the bronze colours in the border very nicely. Is she on the wall yet?

They are all fabulous finishes! I think your added braid really pulls the May bookmark together nicely. The hummingbirds are beautiful, I love the pink. The little needle book is sweet, great colour. And the mermaid, WOW! She looks absolutely beautiful, Felix did a great job framing her! I hope you have her placed so you can see her every day.

I can't remember if I've already commented...!
Thanks for taking part in June's FFG SAL with some amazing finishes. The frame for Mermaid is wider than I expected but is the perfect colour and shows her off beautifully. Now to deliver her to her recipient. :)
