Frames Finished!!!!!!!!!!!!







woohoo! What a weekend!! I finished my B. Potter at the end of the week. Normally, it takes my husband a long time to get to making a frame for me.....he will do for others much quicker. But, this time, he got right on it!! Not only did he get the frame done for B. Potter, but he also got back to the frame he was making for Bethlehem. And...he made a frame for a piece my aunt stitched.
I have no idea how the pictures are going to appear...I load them one way & they appear on their own way. But.....the frame for Bethlehem is made out of maple. My craft room floor is maple laminate, so it matches in there great!!!
The frame for B. Potter is oak. I had him put a light stain on it.
The other frame is my aunt's stitching & the frame is rough cedar. This is one of my very favorite frames that he does. I love the rough look of them. I have many Amish pieces framed like this.
Lastly, I stitched this ornament on Fri/Sat. I made it into the finished ornament yesterday.
I had to wait until this morning to get decent pictures on a few of these.
Have a wonderful day & thank you for stopping by my blog! I appreciate all of the kind words that you leave!!!

Wow those are fantastic. It must be nice to have such a talented DH, you work complements each other so well.

It is really cool that you have an Aunt that also stitches. My Mom and Grandma were knitters and crocheters but not stitchers. Probably wasn't in vogue during their time.
