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!

Shari, I love the new Apple Sampler all framed and hanging on the wall. It's a perfect one for you with all your pie baking! I have that one in my stash and hope to stitch it soon.

Duane did a great job on the floss box, too!

Your husband makes your frames!! How lucky are you, Shari! It looks perfect for your apple pie sampler... Don't you love the changing colors on the trees--makes me realize why I love living in a climate that has four distinct seasons. And today, the sun is even supposed to make an appearance :)

Beautiful Frame yet again. Tell Hubby Great Job! It's the perfect shade of frame. The fall pictures are beautiful. Hubby also did a great job on the floss box. I use the plastic floss boxes. I gotta admit yours is a lot more pretty haha.

DH did a great job on that crate!!
I have every DMC, even silk, in mine and I'm using 8 crates! AND I have another one just for specialty fibers. I have them on a rolling cart by my stitching chair:)

Beautiful framed finish!! Wish you guys lived close so you could do my framing!

Fall leaves....I DO miss that! Our trees are green all year.
