*For information on Maddie, other designs by Tanya and where to purchase them, please go to: The Scarlett House

Tanya generously asked me to finish her cover models for Maddie, so I put together some tutorials for the finishing of the set and you may access them at my new tutorials blog, where I give tips, hints and updated information on finishing this set and other things perfectly ~ each and every time. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but this one has learned some over the years and I started my new tutorials blog so that I could update my finishing techniques and share them with those of you that may be interested.

To learn how to finish the set, please access the tutorials at the provided links:

As always, thank you for visiting and until next time, I'll be keeping 'my hands to work and heart to God'.
Hugs and love,
Signature

  7. Wonderful new tutorials, Vonna! I especially like the chenille trimming. I'll often choose my trims by what hides ends/stitches best...that chenille looks perfect!
