Framing among the kleenex

No stitching this weekend thanks to the miserable sinus, allergy, cold fit I'm having. So, I'm slacker for the week again on ATS...but, I'd rather not stitch on it than stitch when my head isn't on straight and have to rip it out later. Instead I spent some time framing and finishing.

The best Halloween piece out there IMHO is "Remember Me on Halloween" (Birds of a Feather). I stitched this in 2004 and finished it up in Utah before attending the Shepherd's Bush retreat that fall. I even had someone offer me their Hog River frame for it. That Halloween hubby and I were in San Diego at the Hotel Del Coronado (the ultimate haunted house) so this just never got put together. This year I plan to be home on Halloween and I plan to hang it and enjoy.

"Come Let Us Adore Him" (Lizzie*Kate). You saw this gift (from 2002) after I found it again for the upteenth time floating around my house. Now I've found a perfect gold frame for it and did my magic and it's ready to hang at my parents house.

This is Easter Treat Bag (Shepherd's Bush). I had this one stitched in time for Easter, and now I finally have it put together. (I even ironed it, but you sure can't tell).

Adana, I'm sorry to hear you've been dealing with an allergy cold. I hope you're feeling better soon. I don't blame you for wanting to wait on ATS until you feel better.
Congratulations on the great finishes. I had never seen the Remember Me on Halloween pattern and I really like it. Your Come Let Us Adore Him is great - the frame is a perfect match.

Very nice finishes, it's so rewarding to get everything really complete. Your flea market piece looks awesome in the frame you found for it!

Sounds like you and I had a similar weekend! You gotta love the midwest in the spring!

Thanks for sharing the BOAF design, that is one of my favorites too. All your finishes are so pretty.

Lovely finishes, Adana - I love the Halloween piece, and I'm not generally a big fan of Halloween.

Love the Easter treat bag - I think I have most of the SB treat bags - they are lovely, aren't they?
