First, I did manage to get a few pieces framed and hung. So excited to see them up on the walls finally!
Not the greatest of photos nor necessarily the best mounting job, particularly on the little ones, but it's huge progress for me so I'm very pleased.
Also, a few new finishes this weekend (bringing the May total to 9 so far!).
Ok, so it took a year to finally finish this one. I blame it on the very soft linen and lack of a snap frame (what an unbelievable help that was when I finally broke down and purchased one this month!). I am missing the little black bird for the top of the watermelon slice, but I think it looks very cute even without that added touch. I'm still undecided as to whether I will add it. Those large buttons make it much more difficult to frame with glass and this linen will definitely show signs of dust in no time in our house!
I just love this Winnie the Pooh quote! And the colors on this are fabulous. Unfortunately the picture doesn't really do it justice.
The second one I've completed in the series. I have the third queued up for the next rotation. Can't wait to get the three of them finish-finished!
And, last but not least.
I'm closing in on a complete series here. Clara (check!), Drosselmayer (check!), Mouse King (check!), Prince (check!). Up next, the Nutcracker. And, hopefully, somewhere out there I can find the Sugar Plum Fairy kit which amazingly I never purchased with the rest of them.
That's all for now folks. Happy Stitching!
