Framed stitching





I feel like I am having a shopping rebirth on Etsy.com, as if I had never shopped quite like this before. Maybe it's because I finally got my act together and started posting my own things (like drawings, oh my!), but I keep finding these wonderful things and shops that ship to Turkey. That is huge, though it is not good for my Paypal budget.

Anyway, this post is not to gush about Etsy.com, not that there is anything wrong with that, but to show you I finally got some lovely hand-stitched pieces framed. The two floral pieces were made by my dear friend Jenny who gave them to me, oh, over a year ago? I could never think of just the right thing to do with them -- cover a box, book cover, or the like. Finally I got the idea to frame them without glass and some soft poly layers behind them to make them emerge from the frame just a little bit. Liking it so much, I had a little hot pink stitching I did (again, last year, and it looks more red than pink in the picture) framed the same way. I thought of using it for a pillow embellishment or handbag, but in the end thought it would look good propped in a frame on display.
