Managed to complete my November project (No. 51 in the November goal setting party at http://fiberofallsorts.blogspot.co.nz/2015/11/november-2015-lovely-year-of-finishes.html), even if it did turn into an interesting rescue job when I trimmed off the excess batting and backing, and THEN realised I hadn’t yet attached and allowed for the borders! Talk about a senior moment … 😦 Anyway, ended up inserting separate strips of batting into each of the borders, which was fiddly and time consuming, but I really wanted those borders and was determined not to be beaten! 🙂
Changed my mind about the backing, too, and instead of minky I used a dark green fabric purchased a year or two ago, which went well with the light green thread I used for the big stitching.
I was leaning towards keeping this one at home anyway, and my error with the borders made the decision to do so all the easier (hmmm … a little bit of subconscious planning going on in my brain at the time?? 🙂 )
