Fast forward a few years. A few weeks ago I decided that I must overcome this finishing phobia. Today was going to be the day!
Even though the G-S Cement had never been opened, it was dried up when I went to use it. Here is the photo to prove that no matter how much I was squeezing the tube, not one drop of liquid cement was gonna come out!
So, this project is on hold until I get to Hobby Lobby for more liquid cement. I did stick the stitched piece in the coin purse frame to see how it would look. What do you think? I'll post again once it has been cemented in the frame so you can see the "permanent" finish.
