A framed finish

Well, I have a framed finish and love it. I stitched this piece a couple years ago and finally had it framed at The Attic. It is Cherished Stitches by J Designs if i remember correctly.

Also, i just finished up this little piece called "I have to scream" by The Sunflower Seed. I stitched it on 40ct V. Maritime White using the called for DMC. Not sure how to finish this piece yet.


I have finally finished the stitching on the 2nd half of my "my first sewing box" whitman tin design. I just need to do the finishing on the bottom half (this piece) and the fob and i will post a pic of the whole tin "finished".


Not much really going on around here, too hot to do anything. This 115 degree weather is just a killer and don't even like walking down 2 houses to get the mail. UGH! So here is a pic of the puppies last week before dinner time barking and howling at daddy to get moving faster. LOL We are now down to 2 puppies and are keeping both of them. The 2 closest to mama are the girls we are keeping. Bella is right next to her and howling. Fannie is the one in the front with the all brown head. THe other one with the freckles like mama is Reggie and he went to his new home last week.

Oh yes Karen - great framing job! Love that inner border too. You are a brave woman keeping more dogs - my 2 keep me busy enough! I am trying not to be tempted by any new 'tin' projects as I have 3 or 4 projects waiting from Jane Timmers, Just Nan, etc. Never enough time!
