I'm still working on the 2nd side (front door) of the cube.
I attended a workshop at Stitcher's Place (LNS) this afternoon. Heather taught us how to do a Picot edge using 3 different stitches. Four-sided stitch, Pulled Backstitch and the Nun's Stitch. I managed to do the first 2 stitches, but am still having problems with the Nun's Stitch. I will look online tomorrow to find another set of instructions to follow. Here is how it looks when you do the first 2 stitches (four-sided stitch and then pulled backstitch.
Then you fold the evenweave and do the Nun's stitch to secure the edge in place. The edge is a beautiful way to finish a bellpull, hanging sampler, needleroll. I want to do this on the sides of the Snowman Wisdom (if I every get it done). Enjoyed the class, just need to practice more. Thanks Wilma for encouraging Heather to teach a class on this type of finish.

Almost done the bottom square for the cube. Sorry for the washed out photo, the fabric is more orange in real life. This is stitched over 2 on 28ct Fizzle by Picture This Plus.
