Flatfolds!!

I know you are wondering where are the pictures of the packages instead but honestly since it is more for my birthday i am trying to wait till nearer my b-day though i think i have to open them up very soon...
For a while now i really want to try flatfold as there are a couple from the x'mas msal that was completed earlier this year and i want to finish it into a flatfold instead of framing them. These msal pieces were quite big and i'd rather try it on a small piece first.

In between stitching x'mas designs lately i am stitching this 'welcome' chart of Prairie schooler and it's a perfect size(for me atleast) to try flatfold.
Whew! I can say it is not so difficult but it takes quite a lot of time or maybe because it is my first time. BUT i do love how it turn out.




Now, here is one of the x'mas msal, i think from ILCS yahoo group and yeah finish it quicker than the first one but noticed the back of this one compare to the first one. .
Many many thanks for visiting and all comments are very much appreciated.
Off to catch up on groups and then have to hung up the x'mas cards and b-day cards that are aleady piled up here...
Have a nice week to everyone.
