SAL Finish

This is my SAL piece for February. I wasn't too happy with my attempt at making a heart shaped pillow so that is why I am only showing the stitched portion of the photograph. I get soooo frustrated as no matter what I do I am just no good at normal sewing, my finished attempts always look like something a child has made. I've tried all these finishing tutorials, gluing instead of sewing but I just suck at it.
I can't give up though as I have tons of stitched pieces that I need to do something with, so be prepared for lots of moans and groans on my next postings as I attempt once more to somehow finish off my february freebies that I have been stitching this month.
I am not going to be working until next Wednesday now, so I am planning to get all my house work , laundry etc done tomorrow so I will have lots of free time this week-end to stitch, sew, watch the winter olympics, some movies and check out some of the blogs from the new followers I have. Hope everyone has a good week-end a happy valentines day. Hugs!

Keep trying! Trust me, finishing gets easier the more you do it!

I know the feeling oh to well. They just seem really fiddly to me. Love the pillow and stitching.

I know the feeling. I'm no good at finishing either. Keep trying Im sure it must get easier the more you do it.

Very pretty stitching!
As for the finishing: just keep trying. Practice makes perfect.

That's very pretty! I also hate to sew, lol! No-one can understand that when I LOVE to stitch - they just don't 'get' the difference. Snow fell here again today - in the SE we've never seen so much. Luckily it doesn't seem to be settling - though they're forecasting more in the middle of next week. Ah well, at least I don't have to struggle out to school/work!
