Finishing Father Christmas

The center of this 16" x 18" miniature piece finished...  now moving to the border.

This free motion border fill is one of my favorites when a bit of elegance is called for.  It is basically a feathered flower with added scrolls and curly Qs to fill in where needed.  I used medium value silver thread to add further definition to the metallic silver and white border fabric.   The edge is trimmed up flush to fabric edge in preparation for the small tight binding.
 The   border matching binding from front view is appx1/4 wide.  Nice and tidy.
Front finished. Yeah!
Final finish:  Addition of a label and sleeve. Color it DONE!!!
