Back in 2003 (yes, I know, here we are in 2010!!) I stitched the four Drawn Thread seasonal Spots on one piece of fabric but never got it framed. The framer I was using at that time wouldn’t frame anything that he couldn’t put a mat round before adding the frame and this was one I wanted just with a frame. Back in this post I shared a piece that I’d left in with a framer I'd used for the first time. This framer said that she was happy to frame something without mats and I left this piece in with her just after Christmas.
Now, given that it’s almost 7 years from I stitched this! I can’t remember what linen I used but I do know that I went with the recommended threads and then stitched the border alphabet and birds in Caron Waterlilies Fiesta.
Thought I’d share as, even though it has taken me so long to get it framed and I haven’t stitched any DT pieces in a while, I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out and I will be finding a spot to hang this.
Thanks for all the good wishes on the dental visit on Monday. I survived!!! I’m back this Monday for the follow-up appointment and then I’m hoping that’s me done with visiting the dentist for a while! Wishing you all a good weekend!
Until next time….
