Yes, my friends, I am a very happy person today since I am enjoying yet another finish!
The first of my Blue Ribbon Designs sayings is done. I stitched this on 34 count linen over one so the design is only 2-3/8 inches high.
I had purchased frames for these 5 sayings some time ago in a discount store here in Holland. It means playing with each design to make them fit. Answer to this dilemma? Why patchwork of course. I filled up some excess with little one inch squares from my scrap box. Unfortunately, I see in the photos that my frame is scratched on top. Funny that I did not notice them just sitting here looking at it but they show up in the photo. *sigh* I do need new glasses and this must be proof.
I want to give these an old fashioned country feeling and the patchwork works really well for that. And I already know exactly where I am going to hang the 5 framed pieces so I think I will have to consider pulling out the next one this weekend to get started on it.
In the meantime, I am back working on my Quaker Row. I want to get this project finished soon too. It feels huge compared to having stitched this saying since I am stitching it over two. What do you think? I am on a roll? *grins*
