Today is reveal day...

...on the Jayne's Attic forum and my finish for this month is a floss ring tag. I've been wanting to make one of these since seeing them on other blogs...finished with either an eyelet or ribbon to hold the floss ring. I was going to use the eyelet finish following Staci's tutorial but then last minute when I came to make it up I decided to use ribbon instead of the eyelet to hold the floss ring. I must make one with an eyelet soon though, because I really like these too!

The design chosen this month is The Caron Keeper a complimentary design by The Drawn Thread which you can find here. I used the same 40ct Light Espresso R & R Linen that I used for the March challenge, stitching 1 over 2 with GAST Highland Heather, Mountain Mist, Ohio Lemon Pie, Tin Bucket and a WDW in Whiskey (not using the DMC you see in the photos).




After my previous post on the Madeira Jelly Roll tin, I thought I would contact Jane Timmer's to ask if she would one day be releasing the designs for the Madeira Tin Project. It's going to be a while but yes she is...WOO HOO! She has a couple more classes to teach, the last one being September next year so it's not going to be until after that! Looking at the photos Jane has on her blog there were a couple of the Madeira fabrics I still needed for finishing the accessories. I've at last managed to track them down here in the UK and have received confirmation that they are in the mail. Will have to wait patiently now for the release date! :o)

I have another finish but can't show you that just yet. It's a little gift for a friend but I still need to get to a post office to mail it. Hopefully I'll pass by one this week and will post a picture once I know she has received it.

Thanks for the link to this freebie design.
Your Floss Fob finish is beautiful. I made a floss fob using the eyelet, it was difficult because I mounted my design on thin cardboard which made the piece a bit thick. Next time I will use your ribbon technique.

Janaina said...

Hi! Gorgeous piece here! Congrats!
Question: did you used some cardboard piece in the middle of it?
