Some Framing

Before I had a little eye surgery, I picked up 2 pieces that needed framing. This is Autumn Basket by BBD. I did this in February of 2010. It was time to be framed. Please forgive all the darker pics. It's been raining all day. This picture is very long but the colors are beautiful. Below are 2 more pics that show it closer. The frame is a dark cranberry color. There were 2 pics there and now there is only one. I have no idea what I did. Sorry.

This Breath of Autumn by Chessie and Me. I am loving her designs! Will be getting more. Loved all the specialty stitches. You can click on any of the pictures for larger views.
A view of some of the over one stitching. I have used this frame before. It's very wide and rustic.
I am slowly working on the Lord's Blessing. I really am enjoying this design. Love the basket. Thanks for all the comments on my last post. I appreciate the time you all take to read and comment on my blog. It means a lot. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

Oh, Deborah, eye surgery? I hope you're recovering well? You and I really share the same taste in stitching--I adore your Chessie and Me finish. That will just have to pop into my shopping cart during my next online shopping trip :)
