A Finish, Some Framing and a Win.
I picked up Dogwood lace from my framer and I love it. The frame is a cherry color. I would have wanted it wider but this was my only option. You can click on any of the photo's for a larger view. Next up is a small patriotic design by Chessie and Me. I did it on 32 ct mystery fabric using the called for overdyes. The best part is that i had the frame in my stash! I am always so happy when I have a frame that actually fits a piece. The design is only 3.5 by 3.5. I really love the crackle frame. The colors go very well. I won the greatest giveaway from June at Butterfly Wings June asked what my favorite colors are and I went with pink. She sent a package of wonderful fabric and trims. Pink lace, great bows, beautiful fabric, ribbon and the best little buttons. Thank you June! I feel very blessed. This is my latest project. It's called itty-bittys by Keslyn. I saw this at Celebrations and couldn't resist it. It was designed to be stitched over one on 28ct fabric. I wanted mine a little larger so I am stitching on 36 ct Magnolia fabric over 2. There will be 12 different blocks. It's done with all silks and I was lucky enough to split them with my friend,Phyllis. Before I end this long post I had to share a picture of Stella. This what she looks like when we take our walks. She focuses much better when she has something in her mouth. Fish is better than rocks, leaves, sticks or whatever she finds along the way. Isn't she darling? I am shameless. Have a great 4th! Until next time ..... Happy Stitching! Deborah
