Word Play frame finished!

My husband just brought my finished frame upstairs for me! I came up with this idea for the "With thy Needle & Thread"  Word Play pieces a long time ago....like most projects around our house, it had to ripen a while. I finished the January piece a while back. He has gotten back into the frame making, so I said this one needed to be done fairly soon, as I want to display it starting in January. I am going to stitch each month's piece the month before. So, I will be doing February in January & so on.
This little calendar came in the mail & it is perfect with the frame & pieces. I told him if he keeps it up, he will pass me....I will have to stitch faster so he has something to frame......(um...don't let me kid you.....I have over 100 pieces finished, in a box!)
Thanks for checking out my blog & for your kind comments. They are always so appreciated!

What a great finish! Wonder if I show it to my husband he would do something like that? He IS a carpenter after all! Hugs!

Such a great way to finish that piece. So cute.

I keep asking my husband to make frames for me (he loves to work with wood) but he always tells me he needs a new saw... hmmm, after seeing this finish maybe I'll buy him the saw! Terrific job - to both of you.

Like this finish so much better than just another pillow. Great idea.

What a great way to use and display those monthly pieces!

I love your finish for this project! It's my favorite finish for this project that I've seen.

A great finish in a great frame. I'm sure you couldn't find a better one if you wanted to buy one.

What a great idea for the monthly designs. You have a talented husband to help show off your stitching !!

Renee said...

That looks great!!!! Nice job!!! I've collected these but haven't stitched them yet.

Terri said...

Wow, Shari, that's awesome! Your DH should consider selling those, the first one to me! :-) I'd love to do the word play series!

Nancy M said...

Good idea....I had that same idea for my perpetual calendar. I haven't done one month since July. But I have to do more "finishing" on my pieces to get them up. I like the simple frame idea....then I would just have to stitch them!

Ranae said...

Wowza!
That is way too cool, love it

Carol said...

Oh, I love it, Shari!!! Makes me want to hurry up and stitch mine. Not sure what I'll do with the Wordplays--frame them or make them into pillows... You and your husband make a great team!!
