Finishing & Framing

The finishing streak goes on!


First, last night I picked up my framed Enchantment of Winter and it looks awesome!  When we played with frames, there was really no other way to go then with gold.


Had Chrsitin with me, and we were also picking up her Earthdancer.  She did all the cross stitching on this piece, I did the fringe, beading, and dream catcher.  We played with a lot of frame corners until I pulled out the one you see here.  It was one of those hmmm not sure about this one when you see it on the wall but the minute we placed it with the piece.  Huge WOW factor!


Today I pulled out another piece I finished some time ago... back in 2007.  I finally turned Jeannette Douglas's Pomegranates and Pears Needlebook into a needlebook.  A new type of finishing for me and it turned out quite well.






Now that I'm done here, its time to ignore the rest of the world and stitch!!!
