Stitching Away

Last week i started a small stitchery as i have a few empty photo frames around the house and thought that it would be nice to put something else in them other than photo's. So this is one of the finished projects i have accomplished. First this was an ugly frame is was almost a pewter colour and it is very thick and bulky so to begin with i spray painted it white and i must say it looks so much better than before.The stitching is just basic back stitch and it looks quite effective if i do say so myself. As of yet i still haven't managed to quilt the lap quilt and it probably won't get done this week either as the ferals are still on school holidays. but i would like to get it quilted and the binding sewn on before we go to Geraldton to take ff#3 for her operation and then i can hand stitch the binding on while we are there. Anyhoos that's all i have to report for now so till next meet, ciao

  1. Great idea to frame some stitcheries - I love how you spray painted the frame white.I will have to remember that tip!
