Owls of a Feather


I found a lovely solid oak frame for my Love Heart finish
It is now on display (unplanned) in my sitting room!!


I also bought these little drawers to put on my stash shelf
Great for my ribbon & button goodies


Here is a glimpse of what I'm working on now
This is what it should look like when finished!!
The third owl is a felt appliqué, this should be interesting...
This is Owls of a Feather from The Stitching Shed

Happy Stitching!
Mii x



---ooOoo---

J'ai trouvé un super cadre en chêne massif pour un de mes derniers projet!
C'est maintemant au mur de mon salon!
Un petit apercu de mon dernier choix, Owls of a Feather de chez Stitching Shed
A tout à l'heure...

  29. wow, your frame is superb Mii, perfect for this very beautiful piece you stitched
    It's so difficult to find a frame...we are searching one for Clair de Lune and we are also wanting a 'special' frame =D
    A real quest !
    Very well done anyway, stitching and framing
    your new drawers are very cute too.
    I can't wait to see your owls, it's such a sweet design
    enjoy =)

    1. Maaarci boooocou!
      I wish you luck in finding the perfect frame for your project!
      I never think of "the frame" until I've finished my work!!! And then, I end up looking everywhere & becoming obsess with the perfect frame :D
      Maybe I should start buying frames when I find a good one :D Would definitely make my life easier!!
      Have a lovely week x
