Stitching Treasures



I'm getting ready to head out to Utah this weekend.  I'll be with my darling sisters, Joan and Cathy.  Our main focus for this trip is to clean out Mom and Dads house.  I'm sure our emotions will range from hysterical laughter to hysterical sobbing...but because we're together, we'll get through it.  

I'm taking my 2008 Loose Feathers finishes to Jill Rensel for framing.  You've seen them all in my previous posts. Today I added a pic of Blackbird Designs 'Peace On Earth'.  I finished it last year and had Jill frame it for me last fall.  Her work is stunning.  It's difficult to photograph just how impressive her mats and framing are.  This one is 3-D.  She cut out the green leaf stem thing and attached to the mats.  Just beautiful !! 

Enjoy and I'll post when I get back to Florida!  Happy Stitching EVERYONE!!!

Wow, that Jill is amazing! This is beautiful! And of course, so is your stitching. lol! Hope your trip is fun and you all don't have too many heartaches cleaning out your parents' house. Can't wait to see what Jill does with your new pieces!

I love the mats! Jill does some great things with mats. I've ordered from her before for a SB piece I did and I keep telling myself I should send something to her just once to see what she comes up with. Hope you have a fun trip.

Have a great trip. I'm sure it will be full of emotion, but I hope you think of nice memories. I'm in Utah. I'll think of you!

That framing (& the stitching) is absolutely gorgeous. I know this for a fact...I've seen it in real life.

Hope everything goes well in UT for you. Big hugs to all three of you.

W.O.W. That is incredible. I will be anxiously awaiting the eye candy parade when you get back! I know you'll have a wonderful trip with your sisters and will be thinking of you as you clean out your parents' home. I can only imagine the emotions. God bless!
