Hi there Dear Friends!
Thanks for your kinship and following along here:) I've loved following each and every blog in my reader, all of them! I wonder how many of you are like me and have done away with flipping magazine pages to spend more time following stitchy blogs...
So, none of the custom mouldings I toiled over seemed to give this design the period look I was striving for. My heart sank as I sadly resigned myself to the fact that this piece would remain (heavy sigh)... unframed. As a last ditch effort I started pawing through the frames at Michaels, my heart stopped as I noticed this 8x10 ready made beauty perched on the highest shelf at Michaels. I think I actually gasped quite loud, right there in the store - lol.

Frame stands upright, plain rails and upper shelf moulding...
Sweet little period feet ~ lovely design element don't you think...

WDW 35 ct linen ~ Straw
Floss ~ WDW Palomino, 2 over 2, approx 6 skeins
Stitch Count 110 x 138
Initials and year inserted lower right corner of design
After all my obsessing about linen and floss and framing, she became exactly as I envisioned, the perfect combination of design, fiber and finish, couldn't have asked for more. She'll rest on our harvest table, where one can gaze at her and gather inspiration for another project to capture ones' heart...
Ok, I'd better skedaddle before I start weeping ~ and no one laugh at me please, cause I know you've all been there before ~ lol:)
Thanks for popping in today!
