Summer Snapperland

Here's another HD...Bent Creek 'Summer Snapperland', finished into a cube. I can't claim credit for this finishing idea - I saw somewhere on the 'net where someone else had done this but I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it. If it was you, please comment and I'll be happy to give credit where it's due. :) Anyway, I'm always pleased to find ways of finishing my stitching rather than framing because I have more pieces than I can possibly hang already. If I were to do another of these I think I would try to make the cube in a different way, but overall I'm quite happy with it.

Your finish is beautifull. I have seen it finished like this also somewhere on a blog, but can't remember the name either.

Love the finishing idea and little Zorro (from previous post) is a real cutie and think how warm he will keep your head in winter... you could wear him instead of a hat.

Congrats on a very cute finish, the cube idea is really fun, very different.

Your previous picture of the kitten was adorable, did you decide on a name for sure yet? Is it still Zorro?

Beautiful! I posted a link to a French blog where she had done a tutorial of making Winter Snapperland into a cube - maybe that's where you saw it? Here's the link to her blog... http://vavadesneiges.over-blog.com/categorie-913055.html. Congrats on such a cute finish!
