quickie post

Christmas has come and gone, and it was a wonderful Christmas at that! We enjoyed ourselves tremedously, and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. I've also been taking it pretty easy since the surgery, and haven't stitched at all until tonight. But before I get into what I picked up to work on, I thought I would share a picture of how we framed the black tulips.

We went with a fairly simple frame, as I wanted to be able to give it to its intended recipient for Christmas. I was fairly nervous about giving it, as I always am when giving stitched gifts, but I needn't had worried as it was very well recieved!


And now on to what I started working on tonight... while my niece was here she started doing a little stitching, she started two different projects, but actually never finished either one... so I thought I would grab one and finish it off. The one I picked was Holly by Mirabilia. She put in about 20 stitches last Christmas before putting it down, so really it is almost like I started it brand new.

The simple black frame really sets off Black Tulips. I'm glad the recipient love it. Look forward to an update of Holly. Happy New Year!

Hugs,

That frame really is perfect for the tulips, as others too have said. Congrats for a spectacular finish!

Good luck with Holly, she's going to look lovely once finished!
