I have been trying very hard to get the palm frond piece finished. It has been sitting around, accusing me of neglect for far too long. I pushed through last week to get the beading done, except for a few close to the edge. The last day doing that was a very long day!
The border is added now, the backing is on, the quilting to hold the layers together is done. I added the binding this morning and finished adding those last few beads close to the edge. I think it’s done, done, done!!!
Here’s one more detail shot and then I’m ready to move on!
It weighs a ton, by the way. I’d like to get it displayed at the gallery, I think. It’s the type of piece that will fit a certain style of decorating…maybe more appropriate to a place that actually HAS palm trees! No idea what I’d charge for it, right now, but it would be wonderful if someone fell in love with it and just had to have it! Yes, I’m a dreamer, but not a good marketer!
It’s moving on towards the end of the year and I’m trying to move on to more and more finishes. I have several things that just need a backing, or mounting on canvas or an edge finish, sleeve or labels. Getting those detail chores done and out of the way will make me feel like the new year is coming with a huge new attitude! Stay tuned for more finishes!
