They've been framed!!

I am very excited to say that I have found some suitable frames for my embroidered blocks and, with the help of my son have now hung them and, a number of other paintings and decorative pieces of artwork, on my bare walls!!


I am extremely pleased with the framed blocks.  I chose a dark wood frame for one and a cream frame for the other and they look great (well I think so!) Although, I have a feeling that one of my daughters may hide the smaller one in her suitcase when she returns to university in September so, I am not sure how long it will be decorating a wall in my house!!


Hanging the blocks was a good excuse to get some of the other paintings and artwork hung up about the house.  They were all still wrapped up in a spare room from when we moved in at the end of March. I was particularly pleased to get out one of my favourite quilts to hang.  I made this quilt following a block of the month button club designed by Lynette Anderson.  It is called Fernhill and I love it!!  It looks really nice in it's new home.... just the right colours!


The house had been missing a certain 'je ne sais quoi' and, as soon as the pictures went up, it immediately felt warmer and more like 'home'.  Very satisfying!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! x

  3. It is always very satisfying to get jobs like that done. All your work looks lovely in the frames, but I especially like the last one. It has always been one of my favourites

  4. I love the blocks in frame, and it makes me want to finish mine more quickly. It's a great compliment if your daughter takes one. ;) I love that quilt, beautiful colors and so charming.
