Framed!

Finally! Long long (and boring) story but I finally got my framed pieces back! I'm sure you could all hear me breathing with a huge sigh of relief. Hubby even hung them for me already! The first one is Carrie's Attitude piece which was her university graduation gift. We hung it in the living room since really its the safest place to keep it for now until she and JF have their own place again. Although it doesn't show in the picture, we used a dark green suede mat for this, oooh, I love suede mats!

Then is the Bent Creek Snapper series:

And finally my Blackbird piece called When This You See:
Sorry for the slightly crooked pictures (hubby took them!).

Today starts a new SAL over here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Sampler_Gameboard/

Monique mentioned this in her blog and I was enticed to join in. I was thinking of buying the Drawn Thread Sampler Gameboard after seeing tidbits of it posted here and there on several blogs, and when I pulled out some charts last week, imagine what I found! I hate to admit it but I forgot that I already had it!! I even had floss already bought to go with it.

Well I guess forgetting that I had this chart, along with my current use of the magnifier, is definitely telling me something! Yes, yes, it must be the long winter months, not enough daylight hours or sunshine, the need for Vitamin D. It really has nothing at all whatsoever to do with my age, right?

I love getting everything framed and displayed, they all look very beautiful! That’s funny you found you had the chart and threads for the gameboard already :D At least you didn’t go off and buy it again, and then where would you be?!

Wonderful framing on all the projects. I have tempted by the DT gameboard too but I am trying to resist. But if it suddenly appears in my stash I will be joining you.

Wow! These are some great finishes! I love the gameboard and can't wait to see how that develops.

Those old needlework mags are fab too! I love all that vintage stuff.........maybe it's because I'm vintage myself, lol.!

Hi Wendy, I agree with Karen, the frame for the BD piece is absolutely stunning! I wouldn't have chosen silver off the bat but it's PERFECT! All your latest projects are awesome. I've enjoyed catching up on your blog tonight.
