An Easter finish

Here it is!
After hunting various shops....
I finally found a square frame for Love is in the Air!
Plain white, nothing fancy!
How hard can it be to find a square picture frame!
Apologies for blurry pic - I didn't think it would be that bad -



I've also been busy these past few days stitching along on a free Easter pattern
You can find here on Sub Rosa's blog
I couldn't resist finishing it off as a little decorative cushion
My son will offer it to his teacher (instead of chocolates) before the Easter holiday!
I managed to finish it just on time!
I hope she will like it ☺
- Again, apologies for blurry pictures, I'm going to blame the camera :P -

Happy Stitching!
Mii x


---ooOoo---

Ca y est, j'ai enfin trouvé un petit cadre carré!
Il est tout simple & blanc, parfait pour Love is in the Air

Ces quelques jours j'ai brodé ce petit coussin de Paques
pour la maitresse de mon petit garçon
- Ca changera un peu des chocolats! -
La grille cadeau est disponible sur le blog de Sub Rosa

A tout à l'heure...

    1. Aww thanks Margaret! I never thought it would be so hard to find a square simple frame!!!
      I've placed the little pillow in a white paper bag that I've decorated with some Easter ribbons. It looked a treat :D My son took it to his teacher today, I shall hear all about her reaction later on this afternoon!

    1. I couldn't find any when I went!!! I was relying on Ikea too :D
      This one came in a pack of 3, all different sizes. Now I have 2 spare ones... I'm sure I'll find a use for them :D

  13. this frame is perfect =)
    indeed, it's difficult to find square frames, it's in fact difficult to find good frames for our stitchings..
    but your piece is now more beautiful than it was =)
    well done
    I'm sure your son teacher will love her pillow, it's so cute, even on a blur picture =)
    If I was her I would really love
    have a great Easter sweetie

    1. Lol!! I won't be able to do that for long!! Soon he'll be embarrassed to give presents to his teacher :D
      I just hope she enjoyed it. Apparently she was nearly in tears & overwhelmed because a lot of children gave her little Easter goodies ☺

    2. It's so nice to be appreciated as a teacher...sometimes we feel overlooked. The kids make it worth our while though :D xo
