I had my son paint over the designer's mark and part of the color swatches with acrylic paint. It worked very well. Wish I'd thought to have him do that before I reached and covered the circular frame around the bird!
Now the canvas is complete. It could stand a little blocking, but it's basically ready to be turned into a pocket on a tote bag or something.
As far as I'm concerned, this counts as a finish for me. :- )
I've also started a new little coin/card case:
I don't have a 'before' picture to show you but progress has also been made on this pillow canvas:
This one is worked in wool instead of cotton floss. I'm finding I prefer to work with the cotton threads over wool yarn. Consequently this piece will be much longer in process. That's okay; I don't relish the finishing processes anyway. It's all about the mindless stitching for me.
