Boutis progress

I have made stuffing the small petasson my focus project for this week.  It has been almost finished for so long, it is time to complete it.  I have decided to finished the edge with a tape, which was typical for these small pieces.  When I get to that point I will post a few photos on how to do it.
 I have also done some stitching on my large vanne, which is so much fun to do.  Now that I'm past the center which had a lot of close stitching, it is going a little faster.  I love the wheat pattern I am working on now.
I am getting a small stuffed heart ready for the exchange in Pierrefeu in March.  Stitching is close to completion then I will be stuffing this one too.

It's Superbowl Sunday here - so I will be stitching while my husband is watching the game !

Beautiful! I'll be anxiously awaiting your instructions on how to do the tape for a finished edge.

Ton petasson est superbe. Tu critiques toujours tes points : ils sont parfaits ! J'aime beaucoup ton papillon et je suis contente que tu aies repris ta grande vanne !

coucou Heather, je vois que ton papillon est bien avancé pour l'échange de Pierrefeu. Ton pétasson est joliment méché et presque terminé. Ta vanne sera prête pour Caissargues ? Bonne journée. Gros bisous.
