If you sand that door, be sure to use at least a dust mask... if the house is old there is likely some lead paint on there somewhere. Make sure to clean up as much of the dust and larger particles as you can so you don't transfer it with your feet and animals and kids don't ingest it.  If the paint is bubbling a lot you may be able to remove a lot of it with a basic scraper which is hard work, but doesn't vibrate like a sander and takes off larger chunks of paint that's easier to pick up and harder to breathe in.

There is an orange-scented stripper that doesn't smell good, per se, but does smell like really strong orange-like stuff. Again a respirator will come in handy and eliminate the scent while you wear it.

Great idea and a fun way to practice on something "practical"!

I'm so pleased with how this one little part of the signature turned out that I'm going to post a WIP shot to (hopefully) satiate my urge to post this project.

I think I've just about complete the stitching on my (first?) entry and ACK! It's going to be hard to wait a month to post that sucker.

You deserve a morning-after treat if you're so generous as to throw a party!

I love the vegetable idea! I keep imagining an ear of corn for your toddler son.

Okay, I am a total dork and one year later see this! I can personally tell you that the contents were amazing and the witch on the Vespa is in our collection.
You're really only part dork!   Wink  You did all the polite, gracious hostess things, m' lady.

Holy cow.  I'm so impressed!!

I love:

-that you used embroidery to accent the fabric and add the "fuck cancer" part to it
-the stitches, they look great!
-the framing, wow!  I wouldn't have the balls to stretch it like that!
-the uniqueness!!  The idea is so cool and then stretching it like a canvas and the black on the edges is f'in beautiful.
-how clean it is.  The back is even pretty. 

Great job! 

Wow, thank you!  The back of that thing is a disaster under the muslin, let me tell you.  I did learn a few things from that first attempt at stretching and think it will go better this time; I'm working on a stitch using a different scene from that toile right now that I plan to mount in a similar way.
