Hidden Treasure!


Now I know I've mentioned in previous blog entries that I plan on stitching a graduation sampler for my daughter now that she's almost done with college. Well, much to my surprise, I unearthed this hidden treasure when I was looking for another UFO. I always wondered why I never stitched her a sampler for high school and now I find I did. The only reason I can figure that I stashed it away is because I couldn't figure out how to make a tassel that is really small. And why so small? Because for some strange reason I misread the directions and stitched the whole bloomin' piece over 1! Now I have a problem. Do I skip the tassel altogether and have it framed this way? Or do I attempt to make a tiny little tassel that will be in proportion to the rest of the sampler. My inclination is to just have it framed now. But doesn't every mortar board need its tassel? Decisions, decisions!
