Ok, I am rather proud of the stitching here, its my second ever project involving stitching, and the first one was a dog collar and, well - lets not talk about that one. 
So here goes! 
I know its not perfect, but still.

I like it. It looks great. Your stitching is pretty even and consistent.

By the way, is there an "edging 101" in here? I found the one stikcy from Bob Park, but that is a bit over my head at the moment.

If I want a simple edge finish, I use a little water and a burnishing stick, roller, bone folder etc.

If the edge is a little bit more difficult to burnish, I use some beeswax, pure gum turpentine and lanolin mix and a piece of canvas to burnish the edge. 

I have tried a small amount of water then glycerine soap on a edge, that came up really nice, but I am still working on that option to see how it performs with edge paint, dye, antique or a sharpie.

Thanks! I use water and gum targant (?) But I am not sure if I know what I am aiming for.
