Garden Dogs framed...delish!



My pal Pam just sent me a pic of Carriage House Sampling's Garden Dogs that she stitched way back in '07, but just had Greg make the frame. She sent Greg her stitching mounted and asked him to make a frame of his own choosing. She's thrilled with the way it turned out and, if I do say so myself, so am I! She said that's why she wanted Greg to choose a frame for her because she never would've known to choose that particular wood. I'll have to check again with Greg to get the name of the wood he used, but wanted to post this right away. (Update - Greg says it's Box Elder wood)

Battledore and Hornbook


Here are pictures of a peacock freebie (compliments of http://www.aurytm.com/) on a battledore and a hornbook. I stitched the entire sampler for the battledore and my friend Pam in Arkansas stitched it for the hornbook. Pam's is on 32 count fabric over one thread! She's an amazing stitcher. Mine still needs to be hemstitched but I've temporarily moved on. There's a little 3" rule in the picture for size reference.
