I was going to change the frame colour to Black like the sample photo of this chart.
But this is a ready-made frame and there were glass which I couldn't take off, so didn't change the colour...
So this frame colour is just as it was...
Actually this ready-made frame is for Japanese art, like below...
It says... "Go for your dream..." something like that in Japanese, with 8 small birds. isn't it cute??

By the way, there were blank areas at both top and bottom of this stitched piece, when I put it into this frame.
I thought a lot what to do next... and a few ideas were floating in my mind, I didn't know whether it would be sucseed or not, but I have just tried!

There were about 3cm depth in this frame, so I made the two lines with small pine cones for these blank area .
Why didn't I just put (glued) them on the stitched piece???

I'm typically a fickle person (lol), so I will definitely change my mind someday in the near future!
That's why I made this as easily attached or removed. LOL

I know myself well! lol
I added them this time, but sometimes I felt like attaching linen laces on it, I can easily remove these pine cones! (lol)
It's a nice idea, isn't it?!

Well, here is a close up photo of this "Autumn Medley".

I wanted to change the frame colour, but it's still nice in a natural colour frame, don't you think so? There are so many kind of oblong designs © Heart in Hand, so I think it would be nice to add some seasonal designs and change it when the next season has come!

Here is my latest seasonal finish - March Baubles from SamSarah. It is stitched on the recommended fabric (28ct Newport ??) with the recommended GAST and WDW threads and the JABC buttons that came with it. When I get April done, I'll finish them together as a cube, with the SilverNeedle finishing kits.

Being that we still have tons of snow here, I'm going to do one more winter piece, I think, and then switch to spring to encourage me. I'm loving the spring/Easter pics everyone has posted though.

I'm currently stitching Happy Bunny Bunny Day, by The Trilogy.
It could be considered an Easter project, couldn't it?

Sonda's Easter finish has given me a little inspiration. Is anyone else planning on stitching something for Easter?

I have a Shepherd's Bush needleroll kit I'm going to try to get done. It would be so nice to have a little Easter display.

Hello there!
First of all I want to thank Nicki for moving the blog in here, since I think Blogger is the best platform for blogging and I use it also for my own blog (even though I update rarely, sorry about that!).
Talking about stitching, during Febrauary I kept working on Calendar Cats: I realized the February Cat, half the heading and I put some stitches on the October cat which is still unfinished.
I havent started the March cat yet, I think I'll do it on Monday evening.
I leave you with a pic of my last progress, see you!

Thanks for switching to blogger, Nicki. It's good to be able to really share my pics.

I will admit I was sick of winter and started Spring early. Here's a couple of my most recent Spring finishes. They are "Easter Snapperville" by Bent Creek, Heart in Hand's "2007 Collector's Heart", "Valentine Bird", and "Favorite Hearts". I also stitched a Martina Weber freebie "Kathy's Violets" for my Fair & Square exchange.
