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!
