Half Finished String Art

Hello Bloggers!

Welcome my new followers.  I am so glad my blog interested you.

I am glad to be back home! The break was over and now it was time to go back to work and back to blogging, yay!  While I was away from home and from blogging,  I was making these during my free time.  I stitched about 40 pieces of these string art.

But that was not all

Here are all the stitching that I've been working on for the past three weeks.  I counted them. I couldn't believe it! There were 96 pieces in this photo and then I found 6 more pieces.  So, yes! I stitched 100 string art!  I know, WOW!


Here are a few individual.












Some of them will be ornaments and some of them I will use them to alter tin cans and wooden boxes.I can also use them on cards.  What would you use them for? The inspiration of these circle string art was from here.  I looked at Stefani string art and I created my own templates.

If you are interested in the templates, I do have them for sell.  Further details on the templates on a later post.
