Progress…………

On this little vintage piece is going well. I’ve reached the point where I need to trim the batting and backing. I cut away the batting so that the edge is just behind the crochet edging…………………………………….. IMG_0718 The backing is trimmed a tad further out beyond the crochet edge, curves clipped and folded over the batting and between the wrong side of the vintage piece and the batting. It’s the same way I finish the covered hangers. Pinned and ready to topstitch the new edge securely…………………………..IMG_0716 IMG_0717 The first photo above is the right side; the second one is from the back. Now, to go back and continue my feathers and background stitching to the edge……………….IMG_0719 Half-way done!!!  IMG_0720 Quite the contrast….lots of “poof” left to tame!!!!……………..IMG_0722  Won’t be too much longer to finish. Til next time……………….
