Happiness is cross stitching blog

Framed at last!

Finally, my framed cross stitches were ready to collect after months of waiting!

I don’t think I will take them to this framers again, although they did a great job and the finishing is excellent, they were in the shop waiting to be framed since May and when I phoned them on Monday (the date they were supposed to be ready) they had only just put them on the table to be framed!

The photo above is not too clear so I took some more so that you could see how nice the framing is. 
I don’t know what it was about these patterns but I really loved stitching them.
The original post for Preserve With Love can be seen here where there are more detailed photos. 
You can see the original post about Gooseberry Pie here     
Last but not least the Mirabilia Fairy that I had rolled up in a cupboard because I forgot I had finished it!
I can’t wait to put them up on the wall, particularly the kitchen cross stitch finishes.
Until next time…….
Happy Stitching! 
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    The framed pics look really lovely but the shop certainly took their time. Love the fairy, pretty work.

    They turned out fabulously, Lynn. It does seem like a tad too long but worth the wait on these. Your work is beautiful.
    P.S. Hope your mum is doing well.
