Finishes all framed up

Happy Friday ... I hope your week has been good.  We're battling the crud here, it's been a long couple of weeks but I'm getting better and better ... now if we could only get hubby better!

Last Christmas my dad gave me a gift certificate from Ben Franklin ... it's one of my favorite places to get framing done because they almost always have the perfect pre-made frames for me to pick from.  Lisa met up with me at BF and we spend a couple of hours and found frames for all the pieces I wanted to get framed.  I picked up the pieces last week and was thrilled with all of them, now I can't wait to hang them!

Here's Blue Ribbon Designs Peppermint Twist ...
love this frame!
and this is LHN's Home of a Needleworker ... very basic frame but it worked well ...

This is Liberty by LHN ...
love barn wood!

Blackbird Design's Come Down to the Sea ...

more great barn wood
This is Plum Street Sampler's Sergi ... I ordered the frame that Paulette used ... I just love it!


and last is Yule Sampler by The Primitive Needle ... when I ordered the frame for Sergi I also ordered this one ...


and I've been stitching!  Finished February Word Play
Feburary Word Play by Thy Needle & Thread
stitched on misc linen
with suggested GAST threads
 
I've really enjoyed stitching these word plays ... I'm working on March Word Play and Sew Irish by Carol at iStitch ... if you haven't seen it look here, it's lovely!

I have more finishes to show you next time ... I sent some finished pieces to Faye and got back a box of lovely's that I can't wait to share with you.  Until next time ...

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for framing  ...

I like everything you stitch! I've also stitched Peppermint Twist, and Home of a Needleworker and Liberty are both in my stash waiting to be stitched! Yours look great and the framing is very pretty.

Michelle...great framing. Nice to have your finishes ready to hang and enjoy! I love Yule Sampler and have had it kitted up for a few years and seeing yours makes me want to stitch it soon!

Hope your household starts to feel better soon and that spring is just around the corner. We still have lots of snow in the midwest.

Heading to Country Sampler in a few weeks and will check on those pendants again...maybe they will be in stock. pam in iowa

Oh, boy! It's so much fun when you get back your framing AND a special box of finishing from Faye! Girl, it really was just like Christmas! They're all very pretty! I just posted today a 'remedy'for that crud. Give it a try and let us know if it works.
