Last night, I put the finishing touches on Checking His List. I trimmed the selvedge, hand-stitched the hem at the top of the aida cloth, braided the yarn for the loop, and stitched that onto the side. K’s coworker had sewn up the seam for us Monday night. It’s now hanging proudly over the fireplace. Little Miss’ name is stitched at the top, though you can’t see it in the photo.
I think it’s fantastic, if I do say so myself. And nobody can say anything about the appearance of the back side of the stitching, since I used the included white felt to line it and made the back out of red felt.
