Exchanges

I had Carol's name for the HoE Prairie Schooler exchange. I admit being a little intimidated to stitch for Carol......she's a gifted stitcher and finisher and she's prolific in the world of exchanges (AND she's the moderator for the HoE, lol.) I fretted and fussed, trying to figure out a Prairie Schooler that she hadn't rec'd (and Carol, your archives don't go back far enough!) In the end, I decided to do a finish that she hasn't received very many of. I didn't take a pic of the extras I sent but you can see them on Carol's blog :)

Well folks, that's it for me. I started a little fall housecleaning today so I'm a little pooped. I've just made a fresh pot of coffee, so I'm going to grab a cup and plop down on the sofa to watch Sunday Night Football with Hubby. And if my eyes can stay open, I just may stitch a little ;)

I always enjoy seeing what you have made and this PS finish is gorgeous.
I doubt I'll ever dare attempt finishing a piece that way but I do love the way they look.

Please share how you created this wonderful PS finish!! Perhaps there's a link for it or you can provide dummies like me a step by step - finishing is definitely my weak link! LOVE IT!
