Framed!

I picked up two framed pieces last weekend that I wanted to share with you.  Hard to take photos of glassed pieces but you get the idea.

What drew me to Sarah Elizabeth Brooke by The Scarlet House was the verse and the border.  Really enjoyed stitching this one.  The variety in the motifs really kept my interest.

Sarah Seifer is a much smaller piece and I chose a bit of a chunkier frame for it.  I love the tree and snake on this one along with the angels.

Both of these were started in January of 2014 and finished up in 2014.  I don't stitch anything fast so I was especially pleased to have these framed and on the wall.  

I have a couple of new knitting projects in the works and I've picked up Anniversaries of the Heart again.  I hope to have a little something to show you soon!

We also have been on vacation since my last post - we made a quick stop at Eat. Sleep, Knit along the way.  Great yarn shop and a great vacation!  It's always great to get away and re-charge. 

Hope you've all had a great weekend!  See you next time!

Beautiful finishes ~ those frames are great!

Oh WOW Jackie! Both samplers look gorgeous & love the frames you selected. You know I have to tell you that what I love about most how you framed them is the border of linen left on all sides. Makes a huge difference to really see the stitched sampler so well. No shadows covering the stitching no matter where you are looking at it from any angle. Do you find that to be true? Just had a look again and both frames are so lovely:))) love Annette

These are so beautiful Jackie! I have one of them on my wall... And the other is on my wish list..... Beautiful frame selections!!

Mary said...

Both pieces are wonderful Jackie and I loved seeing your framing choices! Sarah is such a fun piece. Looking forward to seeing what's next.

Annie said...

Those are both so gorgeous and the framing really enhances each. I agree with Annette's comment about the borders. I never seem to leave enough space for the pieces to 'breathe'. Hope you've found the perfect spot to display them.

You chose two great frames for these beauties. They must look gorgeous on the wall. Good to read that younpicked up the anniversaries again. I wanted to do that as well and everything is prepared for the next anniversary. BUt I got hooked on my big projects at the moment.

That is a big house on that sampler! Both are gorgeous and the frames are perfect! I have looked at Eat Sleep Knit's website but never been there (don't think they were open years ago when I lived there). Can't wait to see your next progress on anniversaries. Did you finish Ann Dale?
