It’s been a little bit since my last post; October was a busy month filled with lots of stitchy goodness! I finished a number of different projects and hope to share them over the next week or so, but today, let’s start with some recently framed stitching.
About a week ago, I received a package in the mail from Patti Nicolosi. She framed these first three pieces for me. She suggests the best mouldings and does an expert job stretching and framing.
Here’s the first piece - All Joys For Thine by Blackbird Designs. My maternal grandmother was born in 1889 and I’ve included her initials “TF”.
Next, is Liberty Hill from With Thy Needle and Thread. I can’t wait to display this piece with my other patriotic pieces next summer!
I love this next one so much that I don’t want to put it away! It’s Hilda Boo and Sunflowers Too from With Thy Needle and Thread. Guess what? I did not stitch this one. I found the finished piece at Amazing Grace, a shop in Amana, IA. The price was right and it was stitched beautifully. I’m going to enjoy it a bit longer before Putting it away.
Last up is a Stacy Nash design - Tribute to Summer Sampler. This piece was started by a stitching friend who passed away last year. I finished stitching it and added both of our initials to it - SLT and CB. This piece was beautifully framed by Deb at Stitchville.
I hope to return soon with additional updates! Happy stitching!
