Then I framed Wisdom and Compassion by Brightneedle for my therapist friend. The gold of the frame is a little lighter than it shows in the picture. Sorry I couldn't get rid of all the glare on the picture. The glass plate really enhanced the richness of the overdyed threads - they look more vivid than it did when I was stitching it.
It took me nearly 15 minutes to get the pictures to display the correct way - Blogger kept turning them sideways. It's so annoying when that happens!
I have been pleasantly surprised by some of the offerings in The Stitchery and Keepsake Needlearts catalogs lately. Usually I don't find designs I like, but recently I've bought these:
I had some birthday money so I splurged on the candle screen as well as the kit. Storytime is by the same designer as the Thomas Jefferson quote I stitched and framed a little while back .I'll do it in linen instead of the Aida contained in the kit. I enjoy getting the catalogs even though I don't often buy things, so it was nice to be able to place orders.
I hope everyone is having a lovely summer. Be well!
