TGIF and some framing....

I know I have been somewhat missing in action, but the end of the school year is a total engery zapper! I am more pooped than you can imagine by the time I get home from work each day....

But, I did have a chance to go to my framers and pick up a couple sampler finishes I had completed earlier this year.... If you live in or around central North Carolina and need a top notch framer, I sure can recommend Hobby Shop in Sanford, NC... He is efficient, reasonable priced and knows how to stretch linen...He has been my framer exclusively for over 25 years~~~

Threads of Gold

....Molding detail....

Well, my college reunion is this weekend....Finally, I will get to see many of my friends that I have not seen in a very long time....Where does the time go???

Hoping all of you have a great weekend and get some stitching in!!!

Always,

Faye

What beautiful framing!!

Lovely framing jobs - have fun at the reunion!

Lynn said...

Your framed works are just lovely Faye! Isn't it great when you have a framer/stretcher that you can count on? When my LNS closed I didn't know who to take my finishes to for framing. Fortunately the gentleman who did all the stretching is still doing in on the side for us so I'm so relieved.
