I also went to pick up my framing, which I am very pleased with. Here is I Do for Phil, I love the frame that was recommended to me, it really sets it off.
And here is my View from a Terrace, I was unsure if the mount and frame would work but I am very pleased with the result. I have hung it at the bottom of the stairs. It is so difficult to take a photo of the framed pieces, either the flash shines on it or with no flash you get the reflection of me in the glass taking the photo!! Oh well!
I also got a few bargains yesterday, we went to the wool/sewing/shoe shop too and I found that they also sell second hand books and magazines (amazing shop!! So full of stuff!!) I had a browse through the magazines and found loads of Cross Stiching mags that I hadn't got.... and they were 10p each!! So I bought 6 even if I don't use them they were only 10p!! There were 3 Cross Stitch Golds, 1 Cross Stitch Collection and 2 World of Cross Stitching, there is a lovely Venice picture in one, a lovely fairy tale princess on a horse in another and a lovely Joan Elliot Christmas Angel in another.... oh where shall I start!!! (was going to show a picture but blogger wouldn't let me load anymore!!)
Thought I would also show you some on my decorating!!! I often wonder why I bother when 2 seconds later the walls are covered with pictures again!! This is part of Laura's wall that I painted on Friday.... very pink!! Mind you I was as bad as a teenager, I had Duran Duran all over my walls!!!!
And finally what you have all been waiting for...... Henry and 2 of his wives! As you can see I have made good progress on Anne B and I have worked some more on the bottom of Jane's dress. Henry's head doesn't look quite so small now either as his hat is complete. The wives also have their names stitched..... but don't you think Anne looks very grumpy.... I just followed the chart!! Mind you she has a right to be grumpy as she does have her head cut off!!
I have a cold again today!! Can't stop sneezing which is a pain when you are stitching, so I am going to work on small bits and pieces today, I have a Mother's Day card I want to do and more of my biscornu. Next week I am back working on Lizzie Kate - Housework and Warwickshire Map.
