I decided to go with Aubergine for the frame. It really brings out the dark purple stitches in Purple Garden.
I was getting peturbed at the Logan point driver. This is the only the third time I've used it. The first two times, it worked just fine. This time it wouldn't shoot the points consistently, and they kept getting jammed. After spending an hour trying to get the thing to work, I looked online for help. According to some reviews, I found out this is a known problem. I've contacted Logan and they are sending me a replacement (I have to send my faulty one to them at their cost). It should be here by the end of this week. I'll reserve my opinion of the product until after I use the replacement a few times.
Despite my framing "issues", I am really pleased with the final result:
Designer: Angie SB, from Argentina
Fabric: 28ct Charles Craft Dusty Rose Monoco
Started: Oct 5, 2011 ~ Finished Dec 9, 2011
Size 14 x 17"
Framed: February 19, 2012
As I mentioned in a previous post, I plan on hanging Purple Garden in my bedroom. Out of all the rooms in my house, I think it fits with the decor best in that room.
