I've Been Framed!

Well, it's about time life returns to "normal"...or at least what passes for it! 

I don't do a whole lot of framing any more, but every once in awhile, I get on a framing frenzy. (Or at least, my customers do!)

This is a cool project I'm finishing for a stitcher. This is a monthly series from Waxing Moon. She bought one frame and I'm stretching each month as she stitches them. Umm...we're a little out of calendar order here...

Same stitcher...these are all laced and ready for backing paper. I call this the "ugly side of finishing"!

Here are the pretty sides: 1 Lizzie Kate and 2 CherryWood Designs. The aida on the "aida" looks wavy but it's the hand-dye effect.

3 Lizzie Kates-I think she likes L*K, don't you?

Last 2 up, a La D Da and I'm not sure who did America...anyone know? It's very pretty. I live vicariously through other people's stitching. Between finishing and my own designs, there doesn't seem like time for personal stitching...but trust me, I sneak it in!

Lots of pics today. I'm trying to "post" from my iPad to see if it is quicker. So far it's a huge thumbs up.
Thank you to everyone who sent us well wishes on our son's graduation. It was a busy month of May. We head to college orientation this weekend. No longer a Senior, now a lowly Freshman again!

This was my fav pic after ceremonies. I wonder who he is talking to? Probably trying to figure out what parties to hit 1st.

Have a wonderful weekend and Stitch On!

Hands On Design


  1. Hmmm...for some reason, no comments are showing up!? I am responding to everyone's questions via email. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for the info about the point driver, Cathy. I think I do enough of my own framing to get one of those on my next visit to Hobby Lobby!

  3. The Pledge of Allegiance (what you called America) is from Designs by Lisa.

    Best wishes to your son as he begins his college journey!
