Apple Sampler Framed & Hung!
We had a very productive weekend! Friday evening, my husband & I got my sampler laced & ready for the frame! Sat. am, he went down to his workshop & got started. He had my frame made by noon time. He also made me the first of several floss boxes. Thanks Cindy for the great idea!!!! Originally, I wanted these for my Victorian Motto Sampler flosses, but as I have been working on my Little Drummer Boy by HAED, I decided it would be nice to have all 90+ colors neatly arranged. So..you can see by the picture, I have started putting the floss on cards & filing them in my new storage box.
Sat. afternoon, we had errands to run & our last stop was Menard's for stain. My frame is made out of cherry wood. So.....it has a pink cast to it. We decided on a traditional cherry stain & oh my! We both love how it turned out! He stained it yesterday afternoon & this am, I put the backing on it & it is hung!!!!!!!!
I also am posting a couple more beautiful fall pictures. I pass the tree on the left every time I go into town. I admire it every fall. It is just gorgeous!
I hope to have a progress picture of Drummer Boy at the end of the week.
Have a great week & thanks for stopping by & for commenting!
