Framing Day!!!!

This is a "stitchy" Welcome piece I finished a while ago and BC EduCATed.

Here are three Halloween pieces. The bottom left is SP Jenny Bean Halloween Sampler.

Well, I decided to head to town early today and see if I could find some frames for my big pile of finished stitching projects. Earlier this month I went through all of my pieces and measured them all and recorded the information in my Stitching Notebook. Fortunately, I had this with me today. My first stop was at Shakespeare's Peddler. I wanted the frame for her Jenny Bean Halloween Sampler. Theresa has been straightening her shop and had several frames priced really well. Since I had my handy, dandy notebook, I was able to pick up several that would be perfect. After visiting with Theresa, I headed to Lowe's to pick up some paint and to pay for our new carpet. I then stopped by Hobby Lobby. They had the frames for 50% off and I found two frames that were perfect for the JDD pieces. So after an afternoon of stretching needlework, I have 7 pieces ready to display. Not bad for a Saturday afternoon.

Wow they all look great, I have framed a few pieces but it took so long lacing the work and as for cutting the mount board to size I just pay some one to do it, you must have saved a fortune doing it yourself.
