Some finishes!

First up is a covered sketch book for a very creative girl that this is going too :-)
Next up is another pinchusion I made out of the new Nancy Halvorsen book I just got. I am not going to lie, this thing was a bit challenging for me. There were a few stiches that had to be ripped and the curves where a bit tough..still a bit of a newbie with these. I had to redo the center of the fower because I missed the part where i was supposed to cut out the middle of the fusible web and the pins didn't slide in nice without a "pop" sound and I figured it wouldn't be good for the needles so I took the whole top apart and redid.
But, I think all the pain staking labor was worth it because it's pretty stinkin' cute as far as I'm concerned.

Both of these things got sent off to that special creative girl yesterday. Felt good to have done and sent off!
