Today I framed the CCN Holly and Ivy sampler that I stitched a month or two ago.
Don't fall over flat - this is actually a recent project! And a new frame. BUT, the fabric is ancient. I bought it about 20 years ago, when I had delusions of completing a set of 4 floral pictures. It was a series of wildflowers by a designer named Dagmara I think? Anyway, that was about the time that I discovered that realistic, still-life style cross-stitch just wasn't my cup of tea. I'd rather have the painting or the photograph.
Gee. How soon till I get to call my stuff "vintage"?
That's your basic 8X10 frame with a 5X7 opening mat. All bought off the shelf at Michaels. The frame is actually more gold than it appears in these photos. The photos make it look silver.
I got lucky - not much fits in a standard frame, and to be fair, this was a little tight, but I thought with the matting it looked just fine.
Baking cookies today, and making spaghetti and meatballs. Just call me a domestic goddess.
