Modeled by the once again half naked Cute Boyfriend. Look at you? "Why would I do that?"
Took about a half hour, including the 20 minutes I spent programming his name into the sewing machine. I stitched it into the inside of the hat, in the hem? cuff? If he's anything like his dad, or any of his uncles (or aunts for that matter) or cousins, having his name inside will make it easier to claim from the Lost and Found.
Next up, I REALLY have to get Joy done.
Further to yesterday's post: Christine, I *am* the finisher. Sigh. Too bad my confidence in my skills isn't as great as Susan's is. She doesn't want it framed. It's not in the european tradition (as far as I can see from my mother's, aunts' grandmother's work) and she would like it done in the traditional style. I like the idea of hanging tabs. I'll see her tomorrow and mention that. Perhaps she can keep an eye out for a nice cafe curtain rod, and I'll make small loops to run it through. I think the bottom will need to be weighted, perhaps a rod atthe bottom too, to make it look scroll-like? In the meantime, I've posted on the about.com cross stitch forum (who knew?) and will keep searching webshots and google images for ideas. thanks all!
