Framing and WIP’s Progress.

As many of you know I’ve just recently finished a wedding sampler and was taking on the task of framing the piece myself. I managed to frame it and it was just not as bad as I was expecting it to be. I’m rather pleased with how it turned out.
I chose a silver washed frame with a double mount of cream and silver for it.

The complete piece.

I’ve gotten some more done on the Celtic wedding sampler I’ve been doing for my sister so I have an update picture of this for you.
I’m also working on a biscornu pattern which was free on To Stitch or Not To Stitch . I’m doing this in between working on the celtic wedding sampler.

Celtic Wedding Blessing Update

Biscornu Update.

Last month I completed two scissor fobs. One as part of the giveaway and one for an exchange with some friends. I used the same design but just changed around the colours in both of them and then matched some ribbon and material to them. I used a free Lizzie Kate design and some buttermilk 28 ct evenweave and DMC threads. This was my first attempt at making a scissor fob. Addictive little things and something I shall make for myself lol.

It is also TUSAL time again and this month my jar is looking quite full.

Happy stitching
