Surprised to see me so soon?  I said I was going to try  harder and I like to think that I am a woman of my word.  Sometimes anyway! Thanks to all those that managed to make it through the last post and I am happy that you all enjoyed Dan and the latest chapter of his "Moosecapades".  Catherine called them Moose Escapades but I've condensed it a bit so it rolls more easily off the tongue.  

  I promised a stitching update so tonight I will begin with two pieces that were framed right before Christmas.   The first is my Prairie Schooler Christmas Greetings that I showed before it was framed.  I stitched this piece over one on 40 ct Ivory linen using the tent stitch.

And the second piece is one that I finished years ago and had framed but I never liked the frame or the top mat being red.  This is the before pic:

And here is the after. Sorry for the angle, I put glass on it this time and I couldn't get a good pic without glare.  It's from a Mill Hill book and is mostly beads.

And now I'm going to call it a night and go get some stitching done.  But I will be back with some more updates in a couple of days!

Come on, pick your jaw up off the table, I can be brief when I want to!  LOL!!

Take care till next time!

Both are so pretty, but the PS over one on 40 is breathtaking--just love it, Julie!!

You have some beautiful finishes and I agree the green top mat does look better.

Catherine said...

"Moosecapades", love it!!
Both pieces are fabulous, but that PS, I agree with Carol, is breathtaking!
