Like I promised...

pictures of framing. 

I have featured each of these as I finished them but framing is the icing on the cake. 

This little blue frame is so cute. 

I finished this in 2011 but never took it for framing because it was so small.  I hung on to the idea that I'd finish it myself.  That's a laugh. 
The blue is about the same on 6 Fat Men but the frame is larger.  More appropriate to the size of the piece. 

I've used this same purple frame before on a different Halloween piece.  The color just seems to fit the season, I guess. 

I also finished a wedding sampler the other day.  I'm not sure when I'll be able to show that one.  I need to make sure the bride-to-be doesn't read my blog before I can show it.    The wedding isn't until August so it may be a while.  
We are having some painting done in our living room and kitchen.  We've packed up most everything from both rooms and put all the furniture in the dining room.  I'll be forced into my sewing room over the next few days as the painters take over.   As much as I like order in my life, I am pretty good at working around this sort of dis-order.  The stories I could tell of the projects we've done over the years!  This is nothing compared to some of them.  Not to mention that we're down to one child at home. 

My long arm quilter has finished one of my block of the month quilts.  I will pick it up on Wednesday.  Once I have the binding on I'll post pictures.  I can't wait to see it.
