These are the edges of the pages for the great memory book. Once I have cut the stiffening they will all be whipped together to form the book.
Also managed to complete the C and the W and the appropriate Bible verses against each initial. Am not 100% satisfied with the W but it shall remain as is. I wanted a different type of stitching for each initial and the idea was better in the planning than in the execution.
Now I have a small border around the actual 'birth announcement' and then a couple of frames for the photographs that come on final two pages. Also the 'winchester stitch' motif on page 3. The fabric for the cover has been purchased but I am still awaiting the inspiration to arrive! I have really enjoyed stitching this but am itching to get back to my large sampler. I have a week's annual leave scheduled in May so plan on a marathon stitching session then.
Meanwhile, take care everyone.
