Halloween's Friendly Ghost : Flat-Fold Finishing


As I was saying in my last post, I have been keeping myself busy finishing some already stitched projects and I have just completed the Flat-Fold finishing on my little ghost (little Halloween project). I have done quite a few Halloween projects, but they have all been giving away, so this is the very first that I get to keep for myself :-)
Some time ago I had purchased a little finishing book called "The Flat-Fold" written by Judy Odell. This booklet is part of her "Just A Thought" series explaining different ways of finishing projects. For those of you who might be interested, her web site is http://www.justathought.net/prod/booksandbooklets.shtml
I must say that the way she explains things together with lots of photos made it quite easy for me to do my first flat-fold finishing.
I have added a little spider on my finished project. Looking at her, I have been wondering what she could possibly be thinking about our friendly or perhaps not so friendly ghost in her case. Those spider webs are quite fragile and watching our smiling ghost washing them and then hanging them to dry like that could be enough to give our little spider a heart attack or at the very least a nervous breakdown <>
I will now be moving on to a project that I have just started before I started working on all those finishing, which is called "A Cottage Garden". This is an "Inspirations" magazine project and it will become another needlecase. This one though will be for me since the last one was given to my good friend Terry.

What a beautiful flat fold. I'm surprised it's your first one ;)
