Rings on Her Fingers
I don't know what happened to Thanksgiving this year, but it is all about Christmas around town. I think Thanksgiving was about 6 weeks ago? And I am still finishing up those last Halloween ornaments???
Here's number 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas and the edges of two of those rings required making cording and pulling it through and anchoring it so it didn't show through the open purple background.
First you make the cording and then thread a 6 inch piece of kreinik through the loop
take the cut ends and put those through the needle (a bigger one than the canvas calls for)
Use your laying tool to enlarge the holes that you will come up and down in with the cording
pull it through and whip stitch it on the back
And here are two more Golden Crackers finished
One thing about the Golden Crackers - I now have a GREAT stash of gold thread and beads!
See you soon,
