Framing HD's

I hope you had a happy, and safe Easter. We had a lovely long weekend although the four days passed very quickly.

On Saturday night Glenn and I were invited to one of my aunt's for a family dinner. I got a huge surprise as my cousin Donna was there, having flown back from Melbourne, Australia earlier in the week, surprising her parents too. Donna has been living in Melbourne for the past year but had decided to come back to NZ. Donna and I are very close, more like sisters really. She's hoping to come and stay with Glenn and I next week since its another public holiday on Tuesday.

so now onto some stitching news: all of my recent framing has been done! yay! although I don't have all the framing home yet I can share some photos since my friend always takes photos before she puts the glass in. I'm thrilled with how they've all turned out.

for some reason Blogger won't let me post a pic of the Celtic Band Sampler today so I'll try again tomorrow.

I have been catching up with everyone's blogs and the boards today and I see that Danielle and Anne have really caught the needleroll fever that seems to be doing the rounds- I'm sorry ladies! lol. There are so many wonderful designs out there that will lend themselves being turned into needlerolls. Another blogger is going to jump on board on our monthly SAL too. Cool bananas!

Oh Katrina, they're all so beautiful. I adore Celtic Winter and the way you've had her framed. Your blog was a treat for eyes today. :)

All the pictures look beautiful in their frames. Well done. I'm glad some more people have caught the needleroll bug :)

Awesome framing Katrina! I've found that people look at me funny when I say cool bananas here but I know exactly what you mean :)

Cathy said...

Your stitching looks fabulous; of course, I'm partial to the Welcome Spot! :)

Your framings are beautiful! Congratulations! Your frame for Celtic Winter looks like the same one I used for Shimmering Mermaid :-) Looking forward to seeing Celtic Band Sampler too...

The framing is wonderful-- and very smart that she takes pics before putting the glass in.

I've been in remission from my needleroll bug, but I think you may soon put an end to that. LOL

Wonderful framing work, Katrina!

Great framing Katrina! I think my favourite is the birth sampler - love that brushed silver frame - but they're all lovely. I must ring my framer and get my pieces back; he seems to be taking ages this time...
