As we head into another weekend, yet we are faced with another snow storm. Here is a quick snap of the back yard at the start of the blizzard. Once the winds started up it was a complete whiteout so there aren't any pics of that.
This is a snap of the bird feeder outside of our picture window in the kitchen.
Here is a snap of the Cardinals at the feeder the morning after the blizzard. As you can see the snow was no big deal to them.
Once power was restored to the area and our phone powered up there was a message from the framer. I tried someone new because of location. My other frame shop is just to far to travel so I tried a local framer and he was awesome. Very helpful and his rates were competitive. The first up is Blue Ribbon Designs Read between the Lines. I chose a beaded mahogany finish and I love how it turned out.
Next is my son's bar mitzvah sampler. I don't typically get pieces matted and I never choose gold frames but with the advice of the framer I went for it. I do have to say I dreamt every night about how awful it was going to be until I saw it. It came out beautifully. My son loves it and quite frankly that's all that matters.
This is a close up of the mat and frame. Lovely isn't it?? On the stitching front, not much to report. I finished Block 3 of Shores and moved on to Block 4. I have started a new SAL with Carol but didn't like the fabric so I swapped it out and I am working on some exchange pieces. Thanks for stopping by and visiting. I hope you have a chance to get some stitching done. Happy Stitching!!
