Gosh! The past few weeks have really been a whirlwind. I’m so excited to say that I’m now living down in North Carolina! I know I’ve really been off my blogging “game” since I’ve been down here, but I’m getting back in the groove of things and I promise I’m still stitching lots!
In all the craziness of moving, I just realized today that I’ve never actually shared my framed Party in the Coop (Vicki Sawyer and Melissa Shirley Designs) with you all. Here it is- the perfect artwork to live in my new kitchen in NC!
As much fun as I had stitching this one, I had a great time picking and choosing frames for this one before I moved. As with all of my needlepoint, I always like to have a bit of space between the needlework and the glass, so I ended up choosing quite a deep frame for this one (which is also a necessity with all the different threads used for the hats!) The framer used two mats, and split them apart with spacers. I wanted to go with something rustic and country looking, but I also always like something simple, so it doesn’t detract from the stitching itself. I ended up settling on this rough wood one. It ended up giving me the exact look I was hoping to capture!
If you all are still looking to stitch Party in the Coop, the stitch guide is always available through me. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m sure you’ll have as much fun as I did!
