Gentle Friends, over the weekend I picked up a couple of pieces I had being framed.
Here are some snaps... first up...
... I chose a black old-fashioned looking frame for the piece, I liked the way it makes the crows sort of "pop." This was a fun stitch, as are all the BBD pieces I've ever worked on... some info I found on an older post about the piece... "Winter Wonderland" by BBD, stitched on a mystery piece of 36ct linen using mostly the called for floss - and between August and October 20014... the second piece.....
... this great Christmas alphabet is still one of my favorite pieces I've ever stitched. I chose a very plain, dark blue frame. Here is some info about the piece... "ABC Noel" by Les Ambrodales, stitched on a piece of 36ct LL Vintage Meadow Rue using the recommended DMC, stitched between October and December 2011. The one major thing I left off is a snowflake charm that came with the chart. It should be in the space between the L and the J. The charm is silver and I didn't really care for it, I tried it, and like it better off.
There you go sports fans... thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
