Haha! Did you think I had more blocks to show? Not this time; I was in my UFO 'pile' last week and had a few projects so near finished, that I spent an hour doing just that!
I know it isn't very primish to frame them with glass, but believe me, the thought of trying to remove dust from wool applique, for the next lot of years, didn't appeal, so after realising a few weeks ago about a neighbour who has a framing place, I took the plunge and got them framed properly.
What is it with cameras? Why can they not capture what I am seeing with my eye? Or maybe it's a case of 'a bad workman blames his tools'.......anyway, these frames are just beautiful, but I can't show how beautiful on these pics:(
This first one is an adaptation of 'Threads that bind'. I changed out the verse and did the 'Welcome' in wool.I thought the verse from Romans 10v13 suited this piece perfectly; 'Be given to hospitality' and my kids are hoping it will remind me to do a bit of entertaining, but just for the record cherubs....no visitors until you get those bedrooms sorted AND your laundry put away!
The frame is a grained/distressed cream colour, but that is difficult to see.
This is a Buttermilk Basin pattern and the frame is a distressed antique black.
Oh and the slanted roof in the first house is part of the pattern! NOT! In my defence, I think I am correct in saying, this was the first piece of wool applique I ever did, so when I look at it, the roof will remind me of that! Ha!
And finally, a Primitive Gathering pattern. There are two pics here, but I'm still not getting good pics, but you are going to have to trust me, they are much nicer in real life.
Thanks again for stopping by, I was so excited when I picked these up that I had to jump on here to share them with like-minded people. It's not everyone around here, that appreciates my hobby..... I really can't understand that, can you? Anyway, I'm so glad that some people do and I really appreciate the friend I have made through blogland.
Until next time, have a great week,
