Roses of Provence Framed

Already framed!! I took her in to Michaels and the framer there gave me some great tips to save money. She told me if I found an off-the-shelf frame she could mount and frame it right then. It only cost 75$, including swapping out the glass for the uv protection glass!! The best part was that it only took about an hour, instead of 2 weeks! I'm thrilled with how she turned out:)))
I'm seriously considering stitching Sabrina on the same fabric and framing her in a matching frame.

Happy Dance!! Mirabilia Roses of Provence

I've really enjoyed stitching her, the colors are soft and vintage, and I think the Sandcastle evenweave  really suits it. She still needs to be washed and ironed then she'll off for framing:)

Madame update, 3 more pages done!!

I guess what's left is mostly background. Some of her neck too. It's a bit tedious stitching just background, but it goes relatively fast.

Baby sampler from Nora Corbett's Crescent Dreams

I made this sampler for my sisters newest baby, Oliver. I haven't met him yet because we live do far apart, but I hope to soon:)
I mounted and framed it myself.

Still Life with Fruit update

So, I got a bit more done on my "Fruit". It gets to be a bit of a slog when stitching the vase and cup, there's so much darn confetti! It really slows down a lot. But, I'm getting there!
