Framed!

Some of my latest stitches that is! I picked up these three at the framers yesterday and I'm so very happy with my framing choices. First up is BBD Their Song.



I had a difficult time photographing this one. The light keeps reflecting off of the frame and with the black you can't see the detail all that much. The frame has a washed look to it and is pitted to add a dimension of age to it.






Next is BBD Sunflower House. This took me the longest time to make a decision on. I ended up taking it home with me and returning to the store the following day to make a fresh start in my decision. I think I made the right choice!





I saved the best for last. It's Rosewood Manor Spring Quakers. I took a closeup of the frame so you could see the colour and detail on it. It has a lovely shade of copper in it which picks up on some of the flowers. I'll let the picture speak for itself.







All of these frames were courtesy of my MIL who gave me a very generous gift for Christmas. Thank you so much Ruth for giving me the opportunity to frame these beauties!
