Getting ready for the finisher

I went to Joann's today.  I love/hate that place.  I love to look at fabric, trims and doodads.  I hate how slow their service is.  I got a few things to get these canvases ready to go to the finisher.

Fabric for the back

Fabric for the back and floss for the twisted cord
