Since my grandsons are grown I have been skipping the Halloween decorations. I always decorate for Christmas on November 1st but this year I decorated early. I had a great visit from some Kansas stitchers....great friends...and I surprised them by decorating for Christmas early. I still have the tree to put up and a few more things but most of it is done. I thought I would explain that before I show a few pictures of some of my framed samplers...so you didn't think I had gone off the deep end!
These new samplers go great on the walls of my office/workroom. It was the old living room in our house until we remodeled. I have lot of windows and I love all the light in this room...until you try to snap a picture of a sampler with glass on it. I did my best to avoid the glare.
The Home Sweet Home in reds was stitched a couple years ago and when one of the gals saw it she loved it so I printed charts for it. It also says Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. It is stitched in variegated DMC, I selected the darker parts of the floss for certain areas and like the way it turned out. Fits an 11x14 frame and is shown 18(36ct).
The Welcome Spring I put into a beautiful antique hand carved frame. It fit perfect....just like it was made for it. It fits a 16 x 20" frame.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
Be sure to stay tuned for some of my best give-aways ever! You don't want to miss these....lots of floss and hand dyed linens.
Thanks for stopping by!
Love, love the photos of your beautiful stitched pieces.Are the frames on Home Sweet Home and Welcome Spring antique, or is there a place to purchase them? Happy designing!!ReplyDelete

I guess you were able to get the bad wrinkles you were so worried about, out of Forget Me Not sampler that I stitched for you. It looks good framed in your home.ReplyDelete

Loved the picture show, Nancy! So, will you be offering your Home Sweet Home chart for sale? I bet the gals had a great time -- visiting, chatting, stitching, and fondling your threads and trims.ReplyDelete

Love your samplers on the wall!ReplyDelete
Wow Nancy, they are all just beautiful. As I was looking through your pictures I wondered if the beautiful frame on your Welcome Spring was one of yours and then I read on to see that it is an antique frame. Well it is just beautiful to say the least. The thread! I love your bins of thread, I swear I wanted to run my fingers through it! True bliss! Thanks for sharing. Happy Fall!ReplyDelete
