It seems appropriate today to post my progress on the Ghastlies!
Framing each fussy cut photo...
with very crookedy borders!
can't figure out how to turn these right side up....

It seemed impossible to do the usual sashing when each square is so crookedy, so I decided to applique the framed squares on to a wallpaper looking background.
So I sewed the background together with using elmers glue to line up the design on the fabric just right.
I glued and pressed the edges of each square under 1/4"
then I layed the squares on the background and pinned them on.  

I'm sewing the edges of each frame down with clear thread and a blanket stitch.
Can't wait to finish it!
