Monet's Garden is done


I finished the Monet's Garden box. I attached the bottom oval to the stitching but it was not as smooth as I like so I added another twisted cord. I then inserted the bottom oval to finish the inside. Last I glued the top of the bottom section into the gold rim. Now that it is dry, I could show you.

I think this is fabulous. All the finishing pain was worth it in the end. Well, I think so, but I'm not the one with glue in my hair (at least this time).

Remind me that finishing pain is worth it when I start finishing my new project, ok?

Jane, sighing with pleasure in CH

Thanks! This is not a gift, this is a keeper. DH gave me this for Christmas so I will definately display this one. It was a different finishing for me, but I learned too!

Enjoy displaying and using your work of art. I am sure it will give you a wonderful feeling each time you look at it.
