Framed Finishes!!

Good Evening!

I hope everyone is having a great week. It's been busy around here getting ready for Graduation but I think we're on target to be ready on time.

Just wanted to share a couple more framed finishes with you. The first is Erica Michaels' Papillon. Stitched on 40 count gauze using the called for silks.

and a bit closer. If you click on the pics to make them larger you can see the debossed detail in the mat a little better.


The second finish is Antique Locks and Keys by Shakespeare's Peddler.



and here it is on display at the shop with the chart. Stitched on Brash by Picture this Plus using Briar Patch by Belle Soie.

That's it for tonight folks. Going to go stitch for a while and watch Bones. Have a great night, thanks for stopping by and for commenting.

I love the keys and I love the fabric. Since Miss Mary Ann wanted me to wait on the fabric till I saw yours - I have seen it, I love it and I want the same color!

Very nice frame also.

A friend of yours just sent me the link to your blog -- love the way you finished my Locks & Keys piece. Way to go! I love stitchers who think outside the box. And hey, why didn't I think of that? :D

Love the framing - nice! New follower - I love your blog and read back a few. Golden Ice is cool...I haven't stitched on black for years and years - it was tiring.
