One more!



Here's my latest finish! I can hardly believe that I'm on this roll.... I'm sure you can't either. Anyone who has read my blog knows that I have a drawer full of pieces waiting to see the light of day! I did this cross stitch last fall so I'm doing pretty well! Future posts will show you a piece that is signed 1984, but we won't go there right now!



The color looks very pinkish, but it's only the lighting. It's actually an antique white. I originally made these with the intention of framing them and hanging them in my bedroom. Unfortunately, the cloth is slightly different colors and would look bad next to each other. I hastily grabbed the fabric on my way to a night shift and in the poor light, they looked the same.

Nevertheless, it forced me to try a new finishing technique which I have never done and I was quite pleased with it.



Pattern: Good morning Good Evening
Bright Needle
Aida 16 ct - antique white
The side view looks like the trim isn't centered but it is just the angle of the photo. It really looks pretty good in real life.

Thanks for stopping by! You've been a great support to me.
Hugs and Stitches!
Jean

This I love a lot. I have never finished anything in any other way than framing but I am being inspired to try something different with some smaller projects.
