I picked up some framing the other day too. Well, actually, I had the Hubs do it for me since he was going to be in that part of town, and I am very happy with how it came out!!
I put a purple frame on this Blackbird piece and just love the way it looks! I'm giving it to my FDIL for Christmas so I hope she likes it too. Sometimes, especially when you don't know someone well, it's hard to tell if they really like something or are just being polite. I like this well enough that if she doesn't like it, I'm okay to keep it for myself!!
I put Cinnamon Stars in what should be a familiar molding to you all now since I've used it on several of my recent finishes. (I apologize for the wonkiness of these pictures. They are both under glass and I was having a hard time with the glare.) This will reside in my LNS for a while and I'm hoping it will make up for me taking One Nation back out. They've been making noises about not wanting to lose it as a shop model, big seller and all that. But it IS my husband's Christmas present and he wasn't very sympathetic to their cause!
Anyway, I did manage to work a little stitching in while doing all the Christmas prep and I have a finish!!

Did I mention that today is my birthday?! LOL I have been swaddled in fresh-cut flowers and greenery which I just love this time of year!
My husband usually gets me an arrangement that I can use as a centerpiece for the dining room table.
And my SIL sent me an arrangement that I put on the breakfast room table. Also full of greenery and when those lilies open, this will be heavenly!!
Then just a few minutes ago, I received another arrangement from my son and FDIL. I will save that pic for my next post which will be after IH&SW (probably tomorrow!) I am going to go upstairs now and stitch away the rest of the day. Hope to have another finish tomorrow!!
Hope you're enjoying your stitching as much as I am, Laura
