Peek @ 2 new designs. Finished and framed

Autumn's Abundance

What a beautiful day it was here. Spent time @ the shop washing floors, laying down rugs, putting wire shelves together, and putting up curtains. I also finished this morning ironing and pinning the two new designs and framing. Did you know that is so hard to take a picture of something that is behind a glass frame. It was so hard, I had to get rid of so many pictures because there was reflection in the glass. But I got one that I liked, yeah!!.

I also took a few pictures of how I framed Funky Flower Jessica.

I just picked up a quick and easy frame from the children's sections at Joanne Fabric and I got some matching paint. I painted the top of the frame a purple color and let it dry.

Then I used some crackle product that I had at home and applied it on top of the purple and then applied the white paint. I always rush it along by using my blow dryer and watching it crackle. (Just like a kid).

And voila!! The finished frame. It was quick and not to expensive. $1.99 for the frame and then the cost of the paint. It was easy too because I have made the Funky Flowers so that they fit into a 4X6 frame if you stitch them on 14ct Aida or 28ct linen over 2.

Have a good night


  1. Nice frame, I think I'm going to give it a try.

  2. I love your new design! It's so pretty -- it could look so cool if incorporated somehow with the funky flowers. :D Love how you framed Jessica too!

  3. Your newest design is very pretty and so is the latest Funky Flower! I love how you framed it. I haven't used crackle in awhile, but it is a lot of fun!

  4. I'm going to have to give that a try with one of my frames. It's simple enough, even for me!
    I love your new design. I'm having trouble keeping up my stitching with all the new releases. Don't stop them though, just keep them coming!

  5. Nice frame on GREAT stitching. Love the single flowers.
