First, Brownbird Sampler by Bent Creek.
Anyone remember back to the Crazy January Challenge of 2011? That year people assembled 15 kits and started one on each of the first 15 days of January? There is a tab at the top where I list mine. I should go back and add the appropriate photos. You know...in my free time and because uploading pictures is so easily accomplished on Blogger.
Anyhow, this one was kitted up and was one of the ones that went beyond my chosen 15. I will admit to having another one or two still awaiting their turn. If I do another January challenge those will have to top the list.
Anyhow...it was a cute and quick little piece.
The frame compliments the stitching perfectly.
Next is July Cottage by Country Cottage Needleworks. I removed the word 'July' in favor of additional fireworks. I wanted to be able to display it all summer. For whatever reason I love a pattern with a flower pot.
Anything that includes three children is an automatic 'must stitch' on my list.
I liked it enough to do a double frame.
Don't those colors just make this piece complete?
I am so lucky to have found a framer with an artist's eye.
