I Picked Up My Framed Pieces From Joanns Today

Hello my Dear Friends: I hope you are well today.
First Michael and I went grocery shopping at Super Target, I tried to buy a new top and dress but just could not find what I wanted.
We had lunch at Perkins which I wish we had not, I am ill, it is not pretty.
Mike said as long as we are 30 miles closer to Joanns lets pick up your framed piece, okay another 25 miles and bang I was a happy girl.
We have a Joanns  only 23 miles from home but they do not do framing.

The first one is a With Thy Needle And Thread  Design Cutting Paper Snowflakes, I love this design.


I also picked up With Thy Needle And thread Birds Of A Feather, I am so in love with the mat and frame.


So sorry the photos are not the best I tried many locations and could not get the right position for a good picture.

Blessings
Catherine

Catherine, I hope you feel much better soon, sounds like you got a case of food poisoning.

I hope you are feeling better very soon, Catherine. I really don't enjoy eating out very often because I end up sick--just have a very sensitive stomach I guess!

I just love both of your framed finishes--I need to get busy and finish my own With Thy Needle and Thread Mystery Sampler. I just have a bit of the hill and the border to finish--just can't seem to get back to it :)

Lovely framed pieces, it is so hard to photograph them when the glass is in place!

Catherine your framed pieces came out perfect. I have loved the snowflake girl for some time. I love Brenda's charts. Seeing it all done makes me want to make it for sure. You did such a beautiful job with it. Hope you are feeling better. I'm hobbling around here but finally navigated the steps to the computer today to do some posting. RJ

They look great with matting and frames. I like the second one best, the colors are just perfect.

Brigitte said...

Oh my, just gorgeous to see your framed pieces. The designs are so beautiful, particularly the Snowflake Girl. And the frames you chose juts complement the designs. Great job.

Your framed pieces are just beautiful, Catherine! Your day out doesn't sound like the best day. I put off shopping for clothes as long as possible -- it seems to be getting harder and harder to find clothes that don't look too young on me or too old. : ) And I'm very sorry you got sick after eating out. You never know any more about the people preparing your food. Hope you are better now.
