Lots going on

First, here is the progress on the Lacquered Leaves. I almost finished the first one, not quite. I made a mistake counting and had to frog a full row! But, back on track now and it looks great! The shine is so much better in person, but you get the idea.

I picked up Lady Carolyn's fan from the framer! The old gold frame and mat are set off by a narrow strip of blue mat next to the piece. It really makes it pop! Nice job Bob and Maggie!

Last but not least is the latest Stitch n Zip. Alice Peterson designed these gorgeous Hibiscus which I stitched in Vineyard Silks for a birthday present for Miss Linda! I could not post it until after I gave it to her!

My! You have been BUSY. The stitch and zip case is very pretty and looks so soft and feminine! But the fan takes the Feminine award. The frame is perfect, isn't it? The mat is beautifully cut. Your framer does a great job making your stitching look even better.

But of course my favorite is the Asian leaves piece. It is very much the essence of what Betty Chen Louis teaches about negative space and design.

Oh, I just love the framing with the fan. Absolutely lovely.
