A Frame and A New Start

I am really happy with how Mediterranean Mermaid's frame and mats turned out.  It has 2 mats, the top being suede and has a specialty cut in the corners.  The frame itself is a silverish tone with embellishments on it.  I love my framer, this only cost me $106...seriously, no joke. (I always choose from the less expensive frames and always choose regular glass so I save money there).

On October 15th I started Venetian Opulence.  This one is being stitched on 28 count Crossed Wing Collection's lugana, the color is Blueberry.  Unfortunately, there is no opalescent in this one.  I waited so long for Silkweaver to correct their error on my other piece of fabric meanwhile waiting to start MotD and nothing ever showed and since I am not sure if I want to use the original fabric they sent me or not and not wanting to wait a long time for a fabric order, I decided to order something from 123stitch.  Their service is incredibly fast, I received this order in 2 days.  They don't have any opalescents though.  This piece, Venetian Opulence, is going to be a portrait and not the entire design.


  1. Your framer did a beautiful job of framing Tracy. I would be very happy with that one.
    So sorry to hear that you had such trouble with Silkweaver. They seem to be very hit and miss. I like your fabric from 123 Stitch. I always have very fast, reliable service from them.
