Leslie mostly finished a Patterns for Pirates henley tee out of a knit fabric.

 

Laura has been spinning some Southern Cross Fibre on BFL.

 

Question from Mimifan, “My question is about finishing cross stitching. Leslie has mentioned sending her cross stitching out for professional framing. What does that entail? I guess I assumed Michael’s type stores would be able to handle this. Can you give an idea of cost? I’m a new cross stitcher and have no idea what to do with future cross stitching. Thanks!”

About Leslie

Leslie is obsessed with knitting, and when possible, perfection in her knitting. All stripey socks must match exactly and all lace must be blocked severely. She has major love for all of her viewers/readers and hopes to keep blogging and podcasting for years to come.
