Two photos!

First, I finally got a photo of the Mornin' Luv all framed up. I took Laura Perrin's advice and lightly shaded, with my brown colored pencil, around the outside and then lighter out to the edges.
The mat is a wine color to pick up the darker shading in his hat and compliment his shorts and slippers. The frame itself is a bronze metal color.
I finished the tent stitches all around the purse so it is ready to be finished. I am going to set this aside for now and do a batch of finishing all at once.

You do create heirlooms! LOL Great job. Your mom will be pleased, I'm sure - I like the framing.

Morning Luv continues to crack me up. I like the simple framing and the shading you did in the background to make it a bit watercolor-y. He will greet you for many mornings to come! Bet your mom is bursting with pride.

The little purse is darling--perfect for a little girl. Can't wait to see everything made up.

Stitch like the wind, Pat!
