I had quite a few people ask me why Christmas Angel was going into storage (because I lack the funds to get her framed right now), and I decided to take the opportunity to show off some of my stuff.
Warning: Lots of bragging and photos to follow!
First the explanation: I love stitching large pieces, which means that I have to get them framed, because honestly, how else can you do justice to some of them?
As of right now these are in my "To Frame" pile. I frame stuff about twice a year, usually when my framer has a special going on. The way I work it out is that I have two massive expenses but I only have to feel horrified by the expense twice a year. (It works and I'm not messing with it.)
When Witches Go Riding
Trick or Treat
Hmmm. I didn't realize that I had so many finished Nora Corbetts/Mirabilias.
Not pictured are pieces destined for non-framing, like Think on These Things (bellpull), Out for Coffee (cushion), Scheherazade (table topper) and assorted undecideds.
Now for the ones around the house:
Mermaids of the Deep Blue
Part of Fantasy Sampler
Buddah and Bonsai
Four Animals Silhouette
Butterflies Among Bamboo
Stretch, Coffee Chocolate & Men, Coffin Buzz, Book of Ink Circles, Garden Friend aren't shown, because I haven't gotten around to taking semi-decent pictures of them framed.
And no pictures of my smalls/other finishes. Well, no pictures on this post. Everything has pictures in various photogenic degrees in my sidebar.
