A finish got framed!

I finally got around to framing my finished QS Hummingbird from Heaven and Earth Designs!  It was stitched 1x1 on 28ct. fabric from Silkweaver Fabrics.  I don't remember the color name for the fabric - it was Spring something-or-other.  ;-)

The frame is an unfinished wood frame that I painted Spring Green.  The mat is plain black.  The mat and frame are both from Picture

Here is the picture of the framed piece:

It is now hanging above my desk though I may decide to showcase it somewhere else in the house.

Happy Stitching!

WIP update photo/New online shop

Well, I've finished another page on La Belle Dame Sans Merci!

This makes 9 pages out of 40 done.  To be honest though, pages 33 through 40 are only 6 stitches high.  The pages along the right edge are only 33 stitches wide.

Here's the photo:

I'm stitching this on 25ct., 1 strand of floss over 1 fabric thread (1x1).

Page 10 should be interesting to stitch...not.  With the exception of about 100 stitches, the entire page is black!  At least it won't be difficult.

Due to my rotation though, I have no idea when I'll actually get to page 10.  Next up in the rotation is my focus piece, 12 Days of Christmas by Teresa Wentzler.  I'll be stitching Day 9.

On a totally different note, I have opened a new online shop:  Sweet Pea Boutique.  This shop has jewelry, scarves and clutches.  In other words, stuff we ladies all "need".  Ok, there are no shoes, but I've never really been a shoe kinda gal.  lol

Happy Stitching!
