Finally framed!

I finished this lovely Red Bird Sampler by  Brenda Gervais - With Thy Needle & Thread last weekend.  The beautiful shade of red is DMC 817.

I love it so much that I didn't want to just put it away in the "under the bed box" to be forgotten about until I die and my boys have to clear out my stuff!

So, dear reader, I found an old frame that fits.  It is probably from the 80s and was bright gold.  I just sanded it down a little bit and I think it is perfect for this sampler.

I found a few other old frames about the house, so look out for a bit more framing over the next few weeks!

Love, Liz

I love your sampler, especially the arch with the houses underneath. The frame is perfect for it. Yes, it definitely needs to be displayed and not hidden away.

That sampler is indeed far too gorgeous not to be on display. I'm loving the frame, I've got a couple of similar ones stashed away somewhere! xxx

Liz- That is a beautiful piece. I wouldn't hide it away either. xo Diana
