Thinking Positive

I finished stitching this piece back in January of 2014.

Since I decided to stay inside last weekend, it gave me time to not only frame Three Little Words, but Thinking Positive also.  I found a great looking frame at a thrift store a while ago.


The silver gray mottled frame really brings out the sparklies of the opalescent fabric. The photos don't show them, but trust me... it looks good! :)

Beautiful frames - what a great job!

Definitely the perfect frame for that piece. Beautiful choice of fabric and floss too. I was just looking at the chart recently to see if I wanted to stitch it up. I love it, but I'm not sure I have a place to display it. I would probably go for a bell pull/banner finish.

Your finished finishes look great, Meari. I love that you were able to reuse the frame your dad made you. The homestead looks good.

Beautiful, Meari! The silver gray frame is a perfect match for that piece. I might not have mentioned it before, but I'm so glad you found a use for the other "frame with a history." Too often those items that seem to hold only sentimental value get toss by the wayside. It's nice to see an occasional piece being given a new life.

I never think to look at those framed pieces at the thrift store with ideas of what other item I can put in a frame. Your finish finish looks great!

Oooh good job re-purposing a thrifty find, it's amazing how well the stitched piece fits in it! Do you carry a list of finished pieces/sizes with you so you can pick out frames in the thrift stores? :)

You always find such great things in your local thrift shops, Meari, and this frame is perfect for this piece. Great eye you have!!

Meari,

I just had time to catch up on your few latest posts. Your house looks so much better without the overhang. I hope that the hostas and sedum will recover soon.

Thinking Positive looks awesome all framed.
