Wedding Row All Framed Up

I haven't done any framing in ages!  Wedding Row proved to be a breeze to frame!  The frame went together beautifully without giving me any headaches, and the stretching went so smoothly.  No tweaking and playing with it for hours on end to get things straight and even.

I'll be giving it to the bride and groom tonight.

CD, all the purple netting done now onto the blue netting

Here's were CD stands.  I was hoping for a nice long stitching marathon last night, well I was wrong I was in bed by 8pm (which is very unlike me!).  Oh well, all of my chores and stuff are done I've got until mid afternoon to stitch before I have to get ready to go.

You did a wonderful job framing Wedding Row. I know how difficult stretching can be. I never did get the hang of it. CD is looking great too.

Very nicely done Dani, I was able to order the frame for mine and it will be framed by next Thursday and as usual the CD is amazing, oh, and I cleared a spot for it too, right beside the other TW's @ the Landing
Be always in stitches.

Congrats on your Wedding Row finish Dani - looks great and I'm sure the happy couple will be thrilled to receive it. You are closing on Celtic Dragon - seems not that long ago you were 1/4 done and now look at it. It's an awesome piece that would take me forever!

mbroider said...

That is another finish, isnt it!! I thought you had recently started it. And you have finished it too!!

As for CD, it is lookign so good. I think you should give a close-up snap of every thing - the purple netting, the couching, the beads and the blue netting... I am curiosu to know!

Happy Hols, dear!

Alice said...

Beautiful stitching Dani! I guess if you went to bed at 8 it was because your body needed the rest. Just think if you had stitched tired, you'd probably be doing some frogging.
