More Framing and a Finish

I had a couple more pieces framed recently; this time at JoAnn's during their 60% off sale. I've decided that I like their frame selection better than Michael's; they did a nice job framing these pieces.

First up is Lakeside Lodge from LHN. I stitched this quite awhile ago - maybe 2005 or 2006; would have to dig really deep in the blog archives to know for sure!



I just stitched this one last year - it's a Mary Garry design called Peace. I love the frame for this one!



Last but not least, a Mary Garry piece that I stitched earlier this year - When I was Young and in My Prime:



And, there's been a bit of stitching going on around here too. I started this last Sunday and stitched my way all week through to a finish watching the season premieres for my favorite TV shows!

Blackbird Designs
Loose Feathers #15
Sunflower Charms
32 ct R&R Korty's Special Blend
WDW/GAST Fibers

Off to a booya now! See you later!

Great job on your framing and finished sampler! I am jealous of your being able to watch all the new season premieres. We get them late over here. I am DYING to see Criminal Minds again! So far we've just had Glee, which was great.
