Earth Sampler Framed.





My husband got my frame made last night for my Earth Sampler. I bought a piece of rough cedar for the frame. The board is 8 feet long, by 6 inches wide, so I will get a lot of frames from this piece of wood :>) (that was my intention!!!!)
Anyway, this morning I got it painted. I had purchased 3 different colors of brown paint. One was too light, one was too red & I thought this one looked great. It is called coffee bean. How appropriate, since the fabric was dyed with coffee!
On the stitching front, I started 3 new projects over the weekend & then I started another one today. I hope to finish this one quick & then I can post it. It will be a special piece, for sure!!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! The weather here MAY finally be turning to spring!!!
Thanks for looking, reading & commenting. It means so much to me!!!
