Its been Framed

This the the little cottage that I made for my dearest of friends Pierrette for her Birthday and she has just collected it from the framers and I am sure that you will agree that the choice of mounts/mats and frame are just perfect for it. Credit for the choice goes to Pierrette's husband who has had the framing done for an extra Birthday gift to her from him.

You can see a picture earlier in this blog when I first finished the little cottage before I sent it from the UK to the US

Bargello Fantasy Needlepoint

Bargello Fantasy is a Loretta Spears design, I started it around Easter last year but due to ill health had to stop work on it after only completing a small part of it. I was then unable to stitch at all during the time I had my operation and afterwards whilst having treatment and recovery and only started stitching again just before Christmas but then my time was taken up with creating Christmas Gifts and then after Christmas stitching some Birthday gifts which I finished around 3 weeks ago which is when I started work again on Bargello Fantasy called by me 'Blue' this is a companion piece to the other Loretta Spears design that I stitched just after Christmas last year called Bargello Symphony which was called by me 'Pink'
