Another LNS closing - it always saddens me when I hear that a needlework store is going out of business. Within the last three years, we've had a number of them close in the Twin Cities. Fortunately, the one that I frequent the most is still in business and seems to be doing well. The one that's closing was not all that convenient for me, but they did beautiful framing and I always took my needlework pieces to them.
On Saturday, I took three pieces to them for framing - all fairly recent finishes:
Because they do such a nice job, I wanted to make sure they did my framing on these!
About the only thing I completed this weekend was a small freebie pattern from Victoria Sampler. The pattern is on the website and it's called Heirloom Wedding Sampler Free Pattern. I plan to use this teal colored one as a scissors fob:
Tonight I was playing around with some other colors and I'm thinking this might make a nice Christmas ornament:
I still need to complete the filling stitches on the red version. And then there's the finishing - not my favorite part!
Have a great week everyone!
