WIP, Framing and Tusal

Rubie is coming along and I just love her. Love the fabric, love the colors and really love the design! Paulette's designs are so great. Going slower than normal because of the color changes but still...
I had October stretched and I put it in the frame I use for all of them. My blogging buddy Cathey wanted to see the back of the frame, so the picture below is the back. It has these little things that move so you can change out the pictures. This frame also has a stand up on the bottom of the frame. These things are great because you don't need stands. Frame stores have them and places like Michael's. Hope this helps, Cathey.

I had this frame from an old picture that I no longer wanted and it fits Give Thanks perfectly. Below is a close up of the frame. Plain and simple just like the design.

Here is my TUSAL for the month. I keep pushing them down. You can see all the lovely fall colors from Rubie. Thanks for all the comments on my last post. I appreciate them. Until next time...Happy Stitching! Deborah

That frame was made for Give Thanks! So glad you could finish it so easily; now just sit back and enjoy! (while you continue stitching, of course, tee hee)

Your framed pieces look great, Deborah! Nice progress on your Rubie Owl, too. Those leaves took a LONG time to be stitched but are oh so worth the effort. :)

How nice that you were able to recycle an old frame and use it on Give Thanks, Deborah--it really is perfect for it! Cute little owl piece, too--hadn't seen that one before and I love your framed October DT. That is probably my favorite of the year so far...

Deborah love your progress on Rubie, and beautiful framing finish. I don't think I have ever seen the 'stand up' what a great idea.

Hi, Deborah, it's nice to meet you. I live in Western Massachusetts. Your work is lovely, I found your blog when I last visited Margie from Hungry Hook Primitives. I am now following your blog. I have the same hobbies and interests as you and it's always nice to meet someone that you have so much in common with.
Warm Regards,
