Several months ago I finished up the stitching for Just Nan’s Needle Flutter – Lady. But, because I am both lazy and also nervous about finishing things, it sat in my “To Finish” pile for ages. While tidying up my craft closet (and I use the word tidy in the loosest possible sense), I came across it again and decided to be brave and finish it up.

So, what do you think? My blanket stitches aren’t as neat as the model, but I still think she turned out pretty nicely. She is finished as per the instructions included with the pattern, using hand-dyed wool felt for the interior (below) and some sort of memory thread (not Kreinik) for the antenna.

The instructions were very easy to follow, and proceeded in a logical manner. Although, I did decide to sew on the snaps before finishing the blanket stitches around the edge so that I could better hide the thread the snaps are attached with.

After this little success I decided to try my hand at finishing a few more projects. I’ll share another one tomorrow. 😉
