Good news - I'm ready for Valentine's Day - next year. I didn't quite get done in time.
For a simple finishing I turned it into a card.
First, I made a fringe by trimming to 3/8 inch from the stitched border and removing all but the last thread. This can make a mess.
Next, I took a heavy white thread and sewed it down on a piece of card stock. The running stitches between the stitched border and the remaining thread are nearly invisible.
All that's left is to turn it over and sign it.
On to the next project!
