Finishing Weekend Continued

Today I have managed to frame some pieces that were lying in the drawer. This one is Cats Meow by Drawn Thread, I actually completed this last year but have never got around to framing, the only change I made was the border colour and I think I used Salt Petre (WDW), I thought a simple Pine Frame did it right by me.

The next I have framed is by Elizabeth Design - House of my own, again I finished this at the end of last year, I didn't change any of the colours but I did change the beads, this was a fun one to stitch
My other framing finish has been Stitchers Prayer by Little House Needleworks, this was my first piece I put on my blog last November, this I changed a lot, I stitched the words in WDW Swamp Water and stitched it 1/1 on vintage Belfast 32ct linen, I was rather happy with the result.



Thanks to everyone for all the comments, I really appreciate them. KarenV you are right my current WIP is a Homespun Elegance, but can anyone guess which one?

Wow! You snuck in and posted a whole bunch of messages - your finishes are lovely - I especially like the La D Da picture....

Congrats on all this wonderful finishing, Su! You're sure to enjoy them for a very long time. :D

You are certainly a talented framer too! I love these designs and the mats. Can you tell us what kind of mat cutter you use? I have a cheapo one from eBay-and as you can imagine, it doesn't cut well.
Thanks for sharing!

Your framing all came out great. Getting some of your stitching things framed must be very satisfying. Happy Stitching, CJ
