Still Life with Fruit framed!

So after a couple attempts, I finally got this back framed correctly. It gave the framer a lot of trouble because of the little gold filet inside the larger frame. They measured wrong originally, so the filet was actually covering a bit of the picture. Not ok! So I took it back and had to wait another week for the correct size to be ordered and assembled. So now it's home and hung up. :)

Elizabeth had made a return

I have been working on Elizabeth and the Lavender Sky, from Mirabilia. This is a project that has been hanging around for quite a while. I really need to finish it, she's far too pretty to be languishing hidden away:)

Framed Arezzo

My favorite framer at Michaels whipped her up in an off-the-shelf frame. It's so cheap that way! I love the antiquey color of the frame and the vines. 

But meanwhile I had to bring back my Fruit to be reframed because they measured wrong and the frame cut off the edges.

She's done !!

This is Arezzo designed by Nora Corbett.
I stitched her on 28 count lugana that I dyed myself. She's so pretty and delicate, I just love looking at her:) 

So this ended up being just like last year. No finishes until halfway through the year, but then several in a row. I find it's important to have finishes from time to time. It helps me keep my motivation up, especially for the long projects. So now I have Fruit and Arezzo, it's very gratifying. I don't think there will be anymore for a while though, nothing else is that close to completion. The closest would probably be Mira's The Kiss and Este Titania, which are both about halfway. I do also have Chatelaine Hummingbird done except for some beading. Hmmm. 

So the problem is when I have a finish or two my mind starts turning to new starts....
