A Small Finish

And by small, I mean the piece is tiny. Not that it was easy and took two hours to stitch. 

 Our class this month at my EGA meeting was on finishing these tin necklace frames. Here's mine. Just a tiny bit crooked on the bottom there, but part of it is the frame's fault. It's not perfectly straight. For now I've got this on a cheap ball chain from Michael's. 

One of the other things us stitchers might be interested in for a quick finish involves a product currently found in the scrapbooking aisle of your local Michael's or AC Moore. It's a pocket watch from Jim Holtz Idea-ology.

*Tim Holtz Idea-ology POCKET WATCH TH92910

You can easily slip small finished pieces into this and wear it around your neck!

Also in the canvas realm of my stitching world I pulled out my Laura Perin piece that makes me want to go back to the central coast of California. 
That otter is so very cute!
